Ok to see if the buttons can be seen open a terminal console session and run the command ' xev '. Now press each button and see if they produce any keycodes. Write down each keycode for each button. Next Are you using KDE or Gnome? Can only help in the KDE area.

Which model of Presario? You might want to check the Hardware Compatibility List; they list a number of presarios that people have gotten working. Best of luck!
