  [Acer Aspire 5742G] brightness Fn keys doesn't change brightness

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On my Acer Aspire 5742G, the brightness function keys actually shows the brightness notification and changes its bar, but doesn't change the display brightness.
  I tried to add the acpi_backlight=vendor line on GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable and update grub, but it doesn't do anything.

  WORKAROUND: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux
