Description Bernhard Schuster 2017-07-19 01:36:55 EDT
Description of problem:
brightnessup and brightnessdown are not being used by gnome for brightness control changes

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. map the function key for brightness (I am on a Dell Chromebook 13 (codename lulu)
2. 
3.

Actual results:
nothing happens on brightness up and down

Expected results:
The screenbrightness is supposed to change

Additional info:
Worked in Fedora 25 x86_64.

evtest shows the proper keys



Note that volume up and down work just fine!

When validating in the gnome settings, there is no hotkey anymore to set the screen brightness!

A reboot is necessary to make it work... (a logout-login might suffice, untested)
