        OK got it to work doing the following:
        1. upgraded BIOS (in windows)
        2. upgraded to latest ubuntu (intel does not support 14.04 with their latest drivers)
        3. upgraded to latest intel drivers ( 01.org )

        Now I have two entries in /sys/class/backlight : intel_backlight and panasonic. the former works by e.g echo 40>brightness. But somehow the key bindings are changing entries in the panasonic. Will try to fix.

        Thanks!

        OK thanks.

        FYI.

        To get fn-key backlight control to work:
        4. added 20-intel.conf
        5. kernel parameters: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.nomux=1 i8042.noloop=1 acpi_backlight=native acpi_osi="
