You can turn the backlight on with the command...

	xset led named "Scroll Lock";


This only works on Linux.  You miiiiiiiiight be able to do something similar for the other OSs tho


Also, include it in your startup script so you don't have to type it out every time you reboot.

Just got a new CM keyboard, No native Linux support so the keyboard lights do not work with the "scroll lock" key like in windows.
Never fear you can enable it from a terminal by typing "xset led 3" boom you have back lighting working now.
Lazy mans tip.. While you have the terminal open type "touch" open the file with whatever you use to edit text add "xset led 3" save the shell script. Go to system settings , Then startup and shut down, select Autostart, then Add Script button on the right point it to the script you just made, then check create as symlink. Should autostart now. Enjoy
