It's like this guy says: http://askubuntu.com/questions/90640...acbook-pro-8-3
2011 8.3 MacBook Pro running 64bit 11.10.
The screen brightness keys seems to actually do things (i see the Ubuntu-style indicators in the top right part of the screen when a button is pressed), but nothing actually changes with regard to actual laptop screen brightness.
Is this a known issue? How can I adjust the screen brightness on my MacBook Pro?
but got . Doing
sudo echo 4 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
doesn't give the permission error, but has no effect that i noticed.
echo 10 | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
I installed pommed which also didn't change anything. (Or do i have to manually install key bindings after installing pommed?)
