Public bug reported:
With the latest updates to Artful, I can no longer change the screen
backlight and keyboard brightness. The screen and keyboard brightness
up/down keys don't do anything, and moving the brightness slider in
Power Management doesn't do anything. (I don't know of a second way to
change the keyboard brightness.) I can confirm it occurred as of
2017-08-08, but I likely just didn't notice it earlier.
It all works correctly with the Alpha 2, both in the live session and
installed. I tried a clean install to make sure I didn't mess anything
up, and with this second install I didn't install or configure anything
except the non-free wifi driver.
I've tried the Ubuntu desktop (GNOME) daily builds from 2017-10-08 and
today (2017-10-10), and everything is working normally in the live
sessions, so it does seem to be Ubuntu MATE-specific.
