Default Brightness issue on lucid lynx

Hiya, my name is Hasan
I have a Compaq presario V6700 notebook and the bug is that the brightness keys (fn+f6/7) dont work. Following are the things that i have tried...Using Lucid Lynx


first off, i searched the known bugs on the website and i found out some solutions which didnt work on my pc... i even did this:
mhasan@mhasan-laptop:~$ lshal | grep system.hardware

**system.hardware.primary_video.product = 10754 *(0x2a02) *(int)**system.hardware.primary_video.vendor = 32902 *(0x8086) *(int)**system.hardware.product = 'Presario V6700 Notebook PC' *(string)

**system.hardware.serial = 'CNF80449S1' *(string)**system.hardware.uuid = '434E4638-3034-3439-5331-001E6804EA99' *(string)**system.hardware.vendor = 'Hewlett-Packard' *(string)

**system.hardware.version = 'Rev 1' *(string)

then i went into
mhasan@mhasan-laptop:/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop$*


did this
mhasan@mhasan-laptop:/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop$ sudo suroot@mhasan-laptop:/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop# gedit 10-laptop-panel-hardware.fdi


and changed the following line:
<match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.hardware.product" contains_outof="4410s;4415s;4416s;Compaq 5X5">

*<!-- needed since the acpi video module reports it handle the events, but it don't work on this machines-->** * * * *<merge key="laptop_panel.brightness_in_hardware" type="bool">false</merge>

** * * *</match>
and inserted the model no. appeared in lshal 'Presario V6700 Notebook PC' above and the line went like this:
<match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.hardware.product" contains_outof="V6700;4410s;4415s;4416s;Compaq 5X5">


rebooted and it didnt work.....
have also tried:<match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.hardware.product" contains_outof="Presario V6700 Notebook PC;4410s;4415s;4416s;Compaq 5X5">


and also tried these combinations.....
<match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.hardware.product" contains_outof="Presario V6700;4410s;4415s;4416s;Compaq 5X5">


<match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.hardware.product" contains_outof="V6700 Notebook PC;4410s;4415s;4416s;Compaq 5X5">
<match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.hardware.product" contains_outof="Presario V6700 Notebook PC;4410s;4415s;4416s;Compaq 5X5">



rebooted each time i edited something but it dodnt work as it did in the attached post.....
then i tried something else... where you determine if the system is detecting key presses.... turns out my system is not detecting a key press event which is "fn+F6" or "fn+F7" .... i think this is the main issue here..... what can i do to fix that......???

Right-click on the top or bottom panel, select "Add to Panel...", and
select "Brightness Applet".

I tried that, turned it all the way up.

I'm still as dumb as ever.

sorry for the late reply, I wasn't able to reply...
adding the brightness applet helped and now I am able to adjust the brightness by that but the Fn+F6 and F7 still dont work.... I think they may be adding the bug and working on it on the future updates.... as my colleague has the Compaq CQ series laptop and it works fine on it (same version of LUcid)...




and I guesss this mail can be mark as solved!
