Bug Description

Binary package hint: acpi-support

Problem: Can't change LCD brightness via Fn Keys
Fn key presses are detected: Although the gnome pop-up for brightness adjustment pops-up and increases/decreases matching the pressing of the increase/decrease brightness keys, no change in brightness happens.

Running the brightness acpi scripts directly change the brightness.
I can change the LCD brightness manually by running one of the following:
/etc/acpi/sonybright.sh down
/etc/acpi/sonybright.sh up

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10,
acpi-support version is 0.114
