Some function hotkeys don't work

I've a Lenovo IdeaPad S145-15IIL with Arch, but something weird happens. The only Fn keys that work are the ones for adjusting the volume, refreshing pages and change the screen. Brightness control, airplane mode, touchpad/mic/camera switches don't work! It's strange, but idk what could be causing this. I looked for this issue in other forums, but nothing.

When I run

showkeys -s

and test these functions, the ones that don't work are not detected, like if they wouldn't exist.

Re: Some function hotkeys don't work

It could be that kernel support for some Lenovo laptop keyboards is still incomplete, or there may be a bug with the current one. I've only found a couple bugs similar to yours but with a different laptop model. On this site they report that after hibernation the keys work for some reason; not a great workaround, but it'd mean the problem isn't lack of support
