My keyboard backlight is not working after software update . I tried different solutions and commands but didnt work .

I tried using commmands

# xset led on
# xset led 3
# xmodmap -e 'add mod3 = Scroll_Lock'

None of the above commands are working .
My laptop specs

Asus UX430UA intel i7 7th gen
Running Cent OS 7

Looking forward for a solution .
Thank You

I experienced exactly this after the 7.6 update with Gnome. Have you checked Settings/Power/keyboard brightness? Mine was set to zero. After setting it to mid-range and reboot, it was again set back to the low end. However, the next adjust and reboot and it worked!

Note: Prior to discovering the above settings I panicked and installed 'system-config-keyboard' and 'system-config-keyboard-base' so I am unable to tell you whether the setting is/isn't contained in those packages.
