Hi.

 

I bought this model and I'm having the same problems described. I can't use the FN keys on Linux (Any distribution). Sometimes, on Windows 10 I have the same problem and I have to reboot.

I just bought a ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 and confirm this issue still persists (on Arch Linux).

Have been upgrading my BIOS every time Lenovo publishes a new one hoping that this problem will be fixed, all in vein. I recently upgraded to latest BIOS (E14 v1.14) and still the same issue. It's sad that Lenovo does not fix this problem.

Tried this fix (https://github.com/masksshow/Thinkpad-E14-15-AMD-Gen-2-FIX) on Arch Linux, it's working without any issues for now.
