Run the following: $ xev | grep -A2 --line-buffered '^KeyRelease' | sed -n '/keycode /s/^.*keycode \([0-9]*\).* (.*, \(.*\)).*$/\1 \2/p' (all one line. The initial $ is to show it's to be run as an ordinary user). That should pop up a little window, press Fn+F1 and then FN+F2 and see what codes you get out. You should get a pair of "Number Function" for each key. Next, add the following lines to "~/.Xmodmap": keycode 123 = XF86MonBrightnessUp keycode 124 = XF86MonBrightnessDown (replacing 123 and 124 with the appropriate numbers obtained above). Log out and restart X (or just reboot) and see if that works.
