Front Operation Panel LED

Asked by Solomon Nadar

I am unable to toggle wireless on/off, mute/unmute, play/pause using Front operation panel LED keys on my Toshiba Qosmio F60. Currently I need to enable WiFi/Bluetooth from Windows for it to work. Fn+F8 toggle works as soft block/unblock only if I have already enabled WiFi under Windows. Any ideas as how this can be done? The only LED Touch button that works under Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora is the Volume Up/Down button. Touchpad on/off toggle does not work with physical button or Fn+F9 either. Other Fn+ keys work eg., Fn+Esc for mute/unmute, Fn+F1 for lock etc.

These problems seems related to Direct App Launch Button which probably can be solved in Linux by quickstart
I had raised a thread in Ubuntu, Debian forums as well

Is the OS fully updated? It is mobile so can be moved to the router to get a wired connection

Yes, the OS is fully updated and I can get a wired connection too. Wireless works in Linux if enabled from within Windows prior to booting into Ubuntu/Debian. The Front Operation Panel buttons/Illumination Keys (ECO mode, Wireless (Bluetooth and WiFi), Toshiba Scrapbook, Play/Pause, Mute do not work while the buttons for Volume +/- work properly.
It looks like this
