[Bug 145337] Re: Brightness key stopped working after update [Gutsy]

Running KDE on Dell Inspiron here.

Using KDE power manager does work.

>From the console, with KDE running, I can change the brightness settings

% dcop power-manager-6385 power-manager brightnessUp

% dcop power-manager-6385 power-manager brightnessDown

(Use "% dcop power-manager-6385 power-manager" to see all the options).


However, the brightness keys don't work. What the brightness keys do
is to execute /etc/acpi/video_brightnessdown.sh and
/etc/acpi/video_brightnessup.sh. (Anyone wanting to check this should
use xev and 'lshal -m')

These scripts only call "/usr/bin/acpi_fakekey" with the correct key

So the problem seems to be on the "acpi-support" package.

kind regards,
