I have a Dell e6420. The keyboard light is not working with elementary OS. How is it possible to fix it?

1 Answer 1


You can turn keyboard lights on in the terminal by typing xset led 3.

Turn them off with: xset led off

  • Out of curiosity, why do you recommend xset led 3 instead of xset led on?
