I have an ASUS laptop (ASUS X53S series) and I want to adjust the volume by using the FN key and F10 (mute), F11 (vol down), F12 (vol up).

Also F9 key is not working as well(this is for enabling/disabling the touchpad).

I have seen this question but didn't see any solution.

All the other FN buttons seem to work(changing brightness,turning off display,switching off wifi).

Is there any way to do so?

I had the same problem with my ASUS K53E.

sudo apt-get install git

git clone git://

cd acpi4asus-dkms


sudo make install

sudo modprobe asus-nb-wmi

After every kernel update the above will be erased and you will need to re-do it every time until it is included in a kernel version at a later stage. To make it easier create a .deb package which will be easier to install.

sudo apt-get install debhelper 

cd acpi4asus-dkms


sudo dpkg -i [newly-created-package].deb

sudo modprobe asus-nb-wmi


I have a little different computer though; mine is a K53E and yours is an X53S, so I can't guarantee that it'll work.
