Hello, I have a problem with my Samsung notebook.
My Function Keys (Fn) that manage the brightness level are bios-controlled, because they work before Linux boot (in grub and in bios for example).
The problem is that they don't work after the boot. The only way to change the screen brightness is doing echo n>/proc/acpi/video/GFX0/DD03/brightness (where n is the desired brightness level).
I can't assign any function to the brightness fn keys (I think that's because they're bios controlled).

I tried 4 keystrokes doesn`t return keycodes. They`re FN+F7 FN+F8 FN+F9 FN+F10
I did dmesg|tail -5 command and it returns this below.

when cat '/proc/acpi/video/GFX0/DD03/brightness it returns some values.
