Description Grahams Nguimbi 2013-08-27 00:46:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Every time I press on my HIGH (+) and LOW (-) SCREEN BRIGHTNESS button on my laptop, the brightness doesn't increase or decrease accurately. It changes from extremely high to extremely low brightness.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Simply click on the HIGH or LOW SCREEN BRIGHTNESS to see how the brightness change inaccurately.

Actual results:
Screen brightness changes from high to low brightness.

Expected results:
I expect to change accurately the screen brightness (For example, I want to be able to set my brightness to 22% or 54% or 87% brightness. Right now, I can only set my brightness from 0% to 100% brightness)

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************

We apologize for the inconvenience.  There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 19 kernel bugs.

Fedora 19 has now been rebased to 3.11.1-200.fc19.  Please test this kernel update and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.

If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
