do you have the latest version of acpi4asus? not the asus_acpi but asus_laptop module. Also make sure you have backlight controls enabled in your kernel config (somewhere in the framebuffer config)

 Broken notebooks

If you know any porgrammable way to control your notebook's brightness - tell me and I'll add support for it into BrightnessCtl. The most unified way to do so is kernel lcd backlight interface, but it seems that it is supported only by acpi4asus.

Regarding kicker crash: BrightnessCtl tries to unregister the handher that does not even exist so you have kicker crashing. I've solved this in next version but for now it's useless to upload it - this one works for /sys/class/backlight and doesn't work with anything else

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
