Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: hotkey-setup

# lsb_release  -rd
Description:    Ubuntu 8.10
Release:        8.10

# apt-cache policy hotkey-setup
  Installé : 0.1-23ubuntu7

My Fn+F7 and Fn+F8 keys are not working. Fn+F7 must brightnessDown and
Fn+F8 must brightnessUp my LCD. Fn+F4 must change my video out.

dmidecode -s system-manufacturer
dmidecode -s system-product-name
HP Compaq 6735s
dmidecode -s system-version

I changed the file /usr/share/hotkey-setup/ to add the two
following line :

setkeycodes     e012    $KEY_BRIGHTNESSDOWN     # Fn-F7   Brightness down
setkeycodes     e017    $KEY_BRIGHTNESSUP       # Fn-F8   Brightness up
setkeycodes     e06e    $KEY_VIDEOOUT           # Fn-F4 

It resolved my problem for brightness, but I was unable to test for
videout (maybe it is not working, or maybe my tv doesn't accept my
laptop video out mode). But what I am sure that the key number e06e is
right for the key videout.
