I'm no laptop user but found out that:

"Seanix is moving and website functionality will be down temporarily",
which I guess means no support or maybe (778) 321-9290 - Technical
Support :Techsupport at - Office hours 8:30am - 5:30pm Pacific
Standard Time, Mon-Fri - (Canada?)

There's an applet in Gnome Panel that you may want to try:

    Right click upper panel // + Add to Panel // Brightness Applet
