I just installed Linux Mint on my new X1 Nano and the screen brightness buttons don't work. Does anyone know a solution for this?

Hello

Can you specify which kernel you are running now? 4,x, 5,4, 5,8 or something else?

I upgraded to the newest one at the time, 5.8.0-48 and everything worked great. I've since then switched over to Fedora 34 which is running 5.11.11-300 and it's also been working great with no issues.
