I have in KDE backlight of the screen automatically changes. Also in the
applet battery change can be a mouse and it works. But if you change the
keys; and the changes by pressing ONE key (without Fn) and only on the
empty desktop. And if you open any application, but the keys does not
change. (for instructions to a laptop Fn-Clockwise)
Install Gnome image but there is generally no keyboard, no mouse, no
touchpad. Nothing works there.

> container/1496370/x86_64/main/release/
> Feel free to try them and please report back if there are any problems.
> So far, I have tested it on my ThinkPad x230 with ROSA Fresh R2 (KDE) -
> and yes, I can finally increase and decrease brightness with Fn+F8/F9! At
> long last.
> Note that if function keys to manage brightness still do not work when
> that kernel is used, try setting kernel option video.use_native_backlight=1
> at boot time. It is needed for some Lenovo laptops at least.
> Important: do not use acpi* boot options with this kernel.
