And the "customize" function DOES NOT work. I tried that already.
For example, LibreOffice comes with a lot of presets. One is 
"Navigator", that is assigned to F5 under Windows and Ubuntu.
Clicking on the ICON WILL call up the Navigator.
But ... the key = F5 does not. It shows brightness adjustment on my
Dell Inspiron 1545.

I'm not sure, but this sounds like the laptop is not interpreting the
key as an F5 keypress, but as the brightness control keypress. If
that's right, this is not a problem with LibreOffice, more a case of
the laptop not doing what you expect. I don't know the particular model,
but I think it's fairly common for laptops to use some of the function
keys to do stuff like that. Often you need to press a button to toggle
the mode between function key mode and laptop function mode. Could the
problem be something like this?

Just a guess.
