Volume and brightness keys not working
So I decided to jump over from Windows 8 to Precise 5.7.1 so I waned to test it out before I delete Windows. So I burn Precise to a CD and fire it up. My wireless worked great. But as usual with most distros I've tried my brightness keys don't work. But strangely enough on Precise my volume keys don't work either.
I am using Intel HD graphics and the laptop I am using is a Gateway NE56R09h.
I would love to use Precise as my main and only OS but I cannot if I am unable to control my brightness or sound. I always have my brightness on the lowest it can go.
Any help would be much appreciated. I am sort of a Linux n00b, but I love how fast Puppy Linux is and hated Windows 8 ever since I got my laptop and always wanted to jump ships to Linux and learn all about it.
I was inspired to try Puppy Linux by PuppyLinuxWorld on YouTube.
