A quickie

Asked by aznmhc

I am unable to adjust the brightness of my laptop using my sony vaio FN keys (shocker!). I have tried xbacklight and that did not seem to work. Any suggestions? and I am running Hardy Heron.

Doesn't work on my Dell Inpriron 1501 either...
It seems like the power management takes over and prevents us from doing what we need.
VERY annoying. I'm not entirely sure this isn't really a bug.
Can you see the brightness widget pop up on-screen, but then your input is ignored? That's what I'm seeing.
The bug reports are being shot down like crazy on this one...

Can you help with this problem?
