What would you like to do?
Set xbacklight to ACPI brightness (ROG GL702VM but probably GL502VM as well)
while true
inotifywait -e modify /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
echo brightness set to: $(cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness)
xbacklight -set $(cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness)

  1. Install inotify-tools and xbacklight
  2. Copy this file somewhere in your user directory and chmod +x it
  3. In Linux Mint, load up Startup Applications and create a new entry.
  4. Edit the Command to look like: nohup /path/to/ &
  5. Log out and log back in
  6. Try ACPI backlight buttons
