Dell Vostro 1000 brightness keys

I have posted this as a bug fix in ubuntu... if you have a vostro 1000 and ubuntu here is a solution for the brightness keys...

OK so there are two scripts called by the brightness keys which hit acpi_fakekey (doesn't work)
Below are a couple quick and dirty replacements that work on dell vostro 1000

these replace :
/etc/acpi/video_brightnessup.sh

/etc/acpi/video_brightnessdown.sh
http://www.pastebin.ca/834514

Backup any originals
