All keys now work perfectly without any additional kernel parameters. The only problem is '''shifted''' brightness. This can be corrected by[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/631323/comments/2]:

As of kernel 2.6.37, LCD brightness information can be found in the following files:

/sys/devices/virtual/backlight/acpi_video/max_brightness<br \>
+

So aside from using Fn + F5, F6, you can also do the following to adjust the brighness (eg from a script such as /etc/rc.local):

# echo <Number> > /sys/devices/virtual/backlight/acpi_video/brightness

If brightness levels are erratic, download the latest bios from support.asus.com

If maximum brightness seems lower, than it should be, see setpci solution above.

Issues

ACPI and Intel KMS

Screen goes black when Intel KMS and ACPI is on. Brightness controls are not working.

Solution: Add the following to your kernel parameter list:

 acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor

Alternate solution (as those parameters break some fn keys):

  • With acpi_osi=Linux or both - mute, wireless and sleep keys do not work.
  • With acpi_backlight=vendor, brightness is not shifted, but control is totally disabled and brightness does not restore to max when AC power is restored.

So instead (as seen here):

# setpci -s 00:02.0 f4.b=ff

Where "00:02.0" is PCI address of video card (as reported by lspci). This shifts up min and max brightness levels on hardware level, without affecting anything in /sys/class/backlight/... or /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCDD/...

Using acpi_backlight=vendor and changing f4.b register simultaneously will result in even brighter, blinding maximum backlight, while used separately the effect is roughly equal.

LCD Brightness

See Backlight.

If brightness levels are erratic, download the latest BIOS from Asus

If maximum brightness seems lower than it should be, see setpci solution above.

Network Adapter

Problem: The network adapter for wired LAN does not or rarely get recognized (lspci and ip addr do not list it).

Solution: Add the following to your kernel parameter list:

 eeepc_laptop.hotplug_disabled=1

Touchpad

See Touchpad Synaptics.
