Additional Wi-Fi on/off key not work after pressing. I can disable/enable Wi-Fi card using KDE widget only.
hw-probe after pressing key: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=78122f5e8d
Looks like there is something wrong with the driver for that WiFi adapter.
Please try the kernel 4.1.x from http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/kernels_stable_personal/repository/rosa2014.1/x86_64/kernel_4_1/release/ and update linux-firmware from https://abf.io/build_lists/2547115.
See if the problem is still there after that.
You can also try this driver: https://github.com/kuba-moo/mt7630e.
We will package it in the future, but now, it can be used as it is.
Just install Kernel and Wi-Fi above. It can't help for me. Problem is still present.
After some experiments I found a workaround solution for this laptop. For activating backlight keys you need fix /etc/default/grub and add in the end of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line "acpi_osi=" option (without quotes).
Example: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT='splash=silent logo.nologo acpi_osi='
Then run update-grub2 command under root user.
