Where are acpi event scripts that are binded to keyboard shortcuts?

Hello all. I'm Marco and I use Lubuntu on both my desktop and laptop
PC for many years.

I installed Lubuntu 14.04.1 on my laptop, a Lenovo B590. Since some
keyboard shortcuts are missing (Fn+F3: switch screen) or misworking
(Fn+up, Fn+down: change backlight level) or simply without NotifyOSD
message (Fn+F5, toggle wifi), I would edit them manually.

I discovered with acpi_listen that all these shortcuts are associated
with an ACPI event. So I tried to run the scripts inside /etc/acpi:

backlight.sh up
/etc/acpi/asus-keyboard-backlight.sh down

No one works. Even if it does not work very well, the backlight
shorcuts do change the backlight level. The shorcuts really launch
those scripts, or there are other scripts elsewhere?
