  • adding to what Micha┼é ┼árajer says in some cases the brightness may be controlled from /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness as is the case with my dell vostro 3400 and my the brightness range is 0-15. You may have to look for other folder in /sys/class if the same path as mine doesnot exit.
