Asus Fn function + Touchpad

Hi everyone!
I'm new so please, be gentle ahah
Yesterday I installed Manjaro XFCE 20.0 on my PC.
Everything is fine except for the fact that some of my Fn buttons doesn't work.
An example, I can control the volume with Fn+F12 while I can't reduce brightness with Fn+F5 (even if the pop-up is shown on the right corner.

The other issue is that my touchpad doesn't not support anymore the double-tap, how can I active it?

If you need to see some specs, pls, write the command below!

Thank you so much!

A good start would be to read this tutorial on how to report more precisely what software and hardware you use.
What laptop do you use? (I guess it is a laptop)
You can lower and raise the volume with the Fn keys?
You can raise the brightness but can't lower it?

As you may have read in the tutorial mentioned above, you can provide info about your system with:

inxi -Fxxxza --no-host

and the output of


might be helpful.

About the double-tap. Go to the Settings menu -> Mouse and Touchpad -> select the correct device (probably something with Synaptics) -> select the tab Touchpad -> here select the option to enable mouse clicks. To make sure log out and back in again.

There might be workarounds for your model. are the only one (up to now) that knows your exact model.

Those are the output of your command.
By the way I can increase and decrease my volume with the fn while I can't do the same with the bright even if the pop-up appear.
