[Bug 1085270] Re: problem brightness adjustment by Fn keys with linux-image-3.2.0-34-generic-pae


I've fixed this problem in this way:

1) sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

2) In this row GRUB__CMDLINE___LINUX__DEFAULT="quiet splash"

I've added acpi___backlight=vendor -->

GRUB_CMDLINELINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor"

3) I saved the file and close it.

4)  sudo update-grub

5) Reboot the system and I've tried special key Fn.

Thank you to everybody.
