@40476 you must have an extra keyboard attached? Anyway, nothing there that points to a battery… it would need a custom kernel driver…

Maybe you can control the keyboard backlight (needs to be done as root user) in absence of some sort of udev rule…

external keyboard is the G510s that i have

also what is kana?

sorry if im piling on but can you also tell me what phy0-led is?

edit : i found out what THIS is but i dont knoiw about the others

@40476 AFAIK it’s the power led…

just checked some StUfF kana appears to some sort alias to Device 'intel_backlight' of class 'backlight'
