Cannot change brightness with Fn+F3 and Fn+F4 on linux (Ubuntu 20.4) on Elitebook 840 G6

HP Recommended
Elitebook 840 G6
Ubuntu LTS

I have the same problem described here: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Brightness-keys-not-working-on...

Fn+F3, Fn+F4 and Fn+F8 still return the same keycode. (Mute/unmute microphone)

I am on the latest available bios version to date 2021.january.18 (updated via windows).

Please help with this issue.

On Windows, you don't need to gold Fn key. Hotkeys driver only works on Windows.

 

Regards.
