I think I didn't do any configuration or used any app that could mess with the keys. By default the keyboard is using Function keys primarily (F1, F2 etc). Only if I press Fn the other functions will be enabled (Mission Control, Volume etc). But I'll try later registering F1/F2 to other keys, as you mentioned.
I confirmed in the LG site that these monitors have DDC/CI. I'll also check in the monitor option menus if there is any option to enable/disable this.
I used an app to register the fn key to other key and finally I could use the F1 and F2 alternate function, but I can't change the brightness. The F1 key changes the triple monitor configuration, mirror or three different desktops, and the F2 does nothing. I needed to figure out if I could change the brightness with other app, so I downloaded this app https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/controlling-your-monitor-with-osx-ddc-panel.90077/ and in fact it did change the brightness! What do you think the problem is? Key assignment or maybe the triple monitor setup?
By the way in DCC Panel (the working app) I need to select each screen at a time in order to change the brightness. It would be great if your app changed all the three at the same time.
