I tried activating the thinklight on a thinkpad x200 (libreboot 2016 + trisquel 9) using the usual shortcut Fn+Pgup. It doesn't work.

From what I can gather, the thinkpad_acpi drivers should load during startup. This is not the case /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/leds/tpacpi::thinklight doesn't exist.

Otherwise brightness and other Fn-related shortcuts are functional.

Is this standard libreboot behavior ? (I read somewhere that the thinklight is bios-activated).

PS: There is a useless reddit thread about this: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/6z0aon/x200libreboot_help_controlling_thinklight_by/
