Package: mate-power-manager
Version: 1.8.1+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When pressing Fn+Home or Fn+End, the hardware keys to change the display
brightness on a Lenovo Thinkpad T60, a small grey (depending on theme) square
is shown in the center of the bottom half of the screen, but the actual
brightness is not shown. I would expect the new (changed) brightness to be
shown in the square, and I remember seeing it before (probably in Linux Mint
Debian Edition, MATE 1.6). I have attached an image of the square on a browser

Note: I submitted this bug on a different system, but the version
information etc. should be of the affected system (I copied the full
body of the generated bug message).
