Description Couret Charles-Antoine 2010-11-21 12:03:48 EST
Description of problem:
I have a Samsung N150.
But the keyboard shortcuts to modify brightness do nothing.
And xbacklight do nothing too.

I have search a solution. Ubuntu have a package to resolve it, no Fedora.
And the ArchLinux wiki give a solution : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Samsung_N150#Backlight

This script do it ! I can modify brightness via sudo with any password.

But, I want to use the keyboard shortcuts with the utils GNOME (suggest by ArchLinux wiki), but nothing ! I have tested with other kerboard shortcuts (like CTRL+M or N)...

And I have tested a applet wich launch a script (the command to up or down the brightness), it do that only the applet launch the script in gnome-terminal.

I think the problem is in the "sudo" command wich blocked these actions. But it's not normal, this script do without password with sudo...

And, I don't have the applet "brightness" in GNOME. I have all packages "applet" but, I don't find it in the list.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 16:20:44 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
