Well the brightness notification thing randomly showed up one time I was putting up my brightness and I got all excited but I just tried it now and it's still not showing.
I think I figured out what's going on with my brightness notification, it also happens with power settings it's cuz I'm using the battery applet and having hte icon for power manager off. Is there a way to have the icon off but the notifications still appear?

I'm having a similar problem with my Acer Aspire 5732Z. The Fn left and right arrow keys bring up a notification that the brightness has been changed, and they also change the value in /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness, but the backlight brightness never actually changes, it just stays fully bright. Any ideas what might cause this?
Why does it take so long to push this it into the main kernel?
I went to think link at Launch pad and it comes up as a bad link. I am still trying to fix this. I have the same issue as stated previously - the backlight notification says that I am adjusting it, but the screen brightness doesn't change. I have tried several suggestions with no success yet. I am just squinting at night time, my laptop is so bright. Thanks for everyone's help!!
