Leds & ACPI upgrade
To enable every led (the ones on the LCD too) the first thing needed is upgrading the acpi module with the one provided by acpi4asus.
It's really easy, follow these steps:
mkdir sources cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/acpi4asus login cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/acpi4asus co -P acpi4asus cd acpi4asus/driver make make install
Now the new driver is installed. To use it and prevent udev from using the old one, edit your /etc/rc.conf and:
- Add to "MOD_BLACKLIST": asus_acpi
- Add to "MODULES": asus_laptop
Right now you can reboot or execute:
modprobe -r asus_acpi modprobe asus_laptop
You'll find the leds in "/sys/class/leds/".
To enable a led write "1" in the "brightness" file in the right directory. To disable a led write "0" in the "brightness" file in the right directory.
echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/asus:gaming/brightness
Enjoy your leds!
There is a package in AUR named asusoled.
kernel < 2.6.23: It needs turning off usbhid (rmmod usbhid) or patching the kernel: asus-lcm.diff
kernel >= 2.6.23: works out of a box
There is also a separate kernel driver based on asusoled: Asus_OLED. It works without patching usbhid or removing asus_laptop. Just load it before the usbhid module gets loaded and it will work (< 2.6.23, in new kernels works out of a box). It contains a small Qt utility, which can be used as a drop-in replacement for asusoled, and has some additional features.

Here are some useful utilities:
The Lapsus daemon
Lapsus is a set of programs created to help manage additional laptop features such as:
* All the LEDs (on/off) * LCD Backlight * Wireless radio switch * Bluetooth adapter switch * Alsa mixer (volume control, mute/unmute) * Synaptics touchpad (on/off) * Volume/Mute hotkeys * Touchpad hotkey * Backlight hotkey * LightSensor switch and sensitivity level (svn version only)
Prerequisites: acpi4asus from CVS (at least a version > 0.41). In your /etc/modprobe.d/ directory, blacklist the 'acpi_asus' module and add the 'asus_laptop' in the /etc/modules-load.d directory.
Install lapsus or lapsus-svn from the AUR archive. There will be certain complications. First, the berlios.de site on which the lapsus project was formerly hosted has closed down. Fortunately, the code is archived on Google Code. You will need to modify the PKGBUILD accordingly. If you succeed in building the code you will need to create a lapsus.service file, since the PKGBUILDS antedate the adoption of systemd.
Now start/enable the
