[Bug 568611] Re: Screen brightness control fails on Dell Studio 1558

I have posted a minor update to the kernel and gnome-power-manager
packages in my PPA https://launchpad.net/~kamalmostafa/+archive/linux-
kamal-mjgbacklight .  Users who have installed the PPA already don't
need to take any special action -- your system's "Update Manager" will
take care of upgrading the PPA automatically.  This note is just for
your information.

The updated kernel incorporates the latest changes from the official
Ubuntu Maverick kernel, but no new changes to the experimental
intel_backlight mechanism.

The updated gnome-power-manager incorporates these minor improvements to the brightness-up/down keys functionality for Gnome desktops:
  - the brightness "steps" now consistently fall on 5% increments
  - the brightness-down key now limits the lowest selectable brightness to 5% (very dim) instead of 0% (completely dark)
