Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
The program works fine, except for the brightness option.
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
I played with the sysfs interface, (/sys/class/backlight/) and y tried to
adjust the brightness manually by the intel specific driver, but that doesn't
work on my computer.
I Played with the cmpc-based interface (/sys/class/backlight/cmpc) and I
changed the display brightness using the second interface.
   * What was the outcome of this action?
The brightness slider in the power management options in gnome doesn't work
(doesn't changes the display brightness).
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
I want to control the display brightness by the power management...

I am not a native english speaker so the text can be bad.
