Control of brightness only works after suspend. After wake up, you can control brightness via f11 (less bright) and f12 (more bright). However, it is not brightness problem, but keyboard buttons' problem. To control brightness while loaded from scratch, you can do the following command:

# cat 4882 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness

This will change brightness value to 4882. It is maximum brightness level. You can choose some other value, of course.


One touch works out of the box. But it works like a mouse.
