Bug Description

My system:
Operating System: Kubuntu 19.04
KDE Plasma Version: 5.15.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.56.0
Qt Version: 5.12.2
Kernel Version: 5.0.0-27-generic
OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 4 × Intel® Core™ i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz
Memory: 15,6 GiB

Version of fnfxd: 0.3-16ubuntu1

Steps to reproduce:
1) Install fnfxd.
2) There will be error during installation, but all files will be installed. The error is due to fnfxd.service that can't be loaded. Despite that, function keys in Toshiba laptop now work!
3) Run systemctl status fnfxd.service
The output is:
● fnfxd.service
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/fnfxd; generated)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Tue 2019-09-10 12:21:44 CEST; 12min ago

wrz 10 12:21:44 BlackMachine systemd[1]: Failed to start fnfxd.service.

4) Check if /proc/acpi/toshiba/lcd exists. No, it doesn't exist.

What I expect:
I expect that either this file appears in the system or fnfxd doesn't need it. Moreover, I expect that I will have no errors during further package installations or system updates.
