acpi4asus project is a Linux kernel driver that allows owners of Asus laptops to use all the functionalites of their computers such as special keys, special LEDs, brightness control, ...
This driver provides support for extra features of ACPI-compatible ASUS laptops. It may also support some MEDION, JVC or VICTOR laptops (such as MEDION 9675 or VICTOR XP7210 for example). It makes all the extra buttons generate standard ACPI events that go through /proc/acpi/events, and (on some models) adds support for changing the display brightness and output, switching the LCD backlight on and off, and most importantly, allows you to blink those fancy LEDs intended for reporting mail and wireless status.

Ubuntu users must use the acpi-support package, which should be installed by default since 6.10.
If your laptop is not supported (see dmesg after modprobe asus_acpi) :
Try # modprobe asus_acpi unsupported=1
# cat /proc/acpi/dsdt > /tmp/YOUR_MODEL.dsdt
and send us YOUR_MODEL.dsdt
