Brightness keys not working in Dell Inspiron Laptop with Fedora 12 OS


Dear All,

I have installed Fedora12 on Dell Inspiron laptop. Here are my key details of my laptop.

<Fn + F4 > ---- For decreasing Brightness
<Fn + F5 > ---- For increasing Brightness
<Fn + F2 > ---- To enable Bluetooth

I am able to enable bluetooth by pressing <Fn + F2>, But I am not able to increase OR decrease brightness of my laptop screen.

I have attached keymap of my laptop by the output of
Code:
xmodmap -pke
Please find the attachment keymap.txt.

Thanks in advance..

You look at the manual that came with the machine. What did you purchase when you bought it?

That will depend on what driver(s) you need, based on what chip you have.
