    Thinkpad Edge Volume and Brightness buttons not working.

    Hello, the volume and brightness hotkeys on my thinkpad edge have stopped working since I installed Fedora 17 (I have updated to the latest release). I have tried "xev | grep keycode --line-buffered" in terminal, however pressing the volume controls (function 1-3) and brightness buttons (function 7-8) return nothing.

    Could someone offer some assistance please?

    This might help: https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Kernel/Debugging/Backlight

    Also take a look at http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/ThinkWiki They have a good search engine there for ThinkPads.
