The function key for brightness up

I have a problem with the key Fn+F6 (brightness up) on my NB ASUS A8JN under Ubuntu. In older versions 6.04 this key was OK but since I updated to 7.10 GG the key has not worked. I dont know where is a problem because Fn+F5 works well. Nevertheless when I execute command acpi_fakekey with argument 225 then brightness gets increased. Or when I execute script /etc/acpi/ I get the same result.
I would like to do it in the way when after pressing the key it is done automatically.
Does anybody know how to make the key working again well, please?
