What windows does or doesn't do is of no consequence at all. It is a completely different OS with completely different support.

run:

gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

Change this line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

To:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=Linux"

Save the new file, close gedit and run:

sudo update-grub

Reboot to test.
