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.


I also thought about that already, although I have currently no idea how to change that keyboard behavior. BUT ... if that were true ..would / should LibreOffice not behave in the same way under Ubuntu (Unity desktop), Xubuntu (XFCE) and Mint (Cinnamon)?

If I revall correctly (this is an old PC of my daugther), I borrowed it a few years back when I had to spend a week away from home. At that time the PC was running Windows Vista and I used LibreOffice in that environment, but do not remember any such behavior ...
