Description Jiri Prajzner 2016-01-12 05:25:24 EST
Description of problem:
Please include standalone brightness control into Fedora by default. The best location would be under display settings (and not only under power settings - it's really counter-intuitive). The HW keys are not always working on all laptops, therefore people should be able to set brightness via SW control.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open Settings > Display
2. look for brightness control

Actual results:
There's no brightness control under Display

Expected results:
There's a brightness control under Display and not only under Power

Why doesn't the brightness slider on the drop down menu at the upper right of the screen work for you?

It does, I completely overlooked it.
Thanks and sorry.
