Fixing the Damned Linux Brightness Bug

Switch to using the nvidia driver in the driver control

Then execute:

sudo nvidia-xconfig
sudo vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Make the screen section look like:

Section “Screen”
Identifier “Screen0”
Device “Device0”
Monitor “Monitor0”
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection “Display”
Depth 24
EndSubSection
Option “RegistryDwords” “EnableBrightnessControl=1”
EndSection

Finally reboot:

 sudo reboot now
