MSI GT70 laptop has TochpadToggle button with led backlight. Pressing generates XF86ToggleTouchpad event, but I also want to turn on/off the led. /sys/class/leds contains only ethernet led. Thanks

did you check kernel modules and such?

usually there are special software to control such leds. the net is your friend ...

if you have a rather new hardware you need to wait a bit until someone develops such kernel module ...
