output from 'lshal | grep bright'
Description of problem:
The brightness keys do not work in KDE (kdebase-4.3.2-3.fc11.i586, kernel-22.214.171.124-96.fc11.i586) on HP nc6400 notebook. The commandline brightness control works though (by writing to /sys/devices/virtual/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness). It also works fine in GNOME as well as it used to in KDE from the latest Fedora 10.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. press Fn+brightness up/down button
Actual results: nothing happens
Expected results: brightness of the screen should change
Additional info: 'lshal | grep bright' output is attached.
