You need to adjust what the key does, you should have a file somewhere, maybe
/proc/acpi/video/VID*/LCD/brightness
or
/sys/class/backlight/acpi*/brightness
and that file will be the key to solving it.

try the arch wiki called backlight, it's pretty good. https://duckduckgo.com/html/?q=arch+wiki+backlight

You tried changing the file "brightness" how? Show it with code tags like this:

Code: Select all
$ ls /sys/class/backlight/
acpi_video0
$ ls /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0
actual_brightness  brightness  max_brightness  subsystem  uevent
bl_power           device      power           type
$ cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
10

i did the following:

Code: Select all
$ cd /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0
$ ls
actual_brightness  brightness  max_brightness  subsystem  uevent
bl_power           device      power           type
$ cat max_brightness
10
$ cat brightness
6
$ sudo gedit brightness

Then i did change the value to 4 (for example) and save it
Code: Select all
$ cat brightness
4

you did not show that in /sys/class/backlight folder, acpi_video0 is the only entry? If there's another entry then try that one. Also the wiki link had a suggestion or two for when this does not work.

there's usually no need to use gedit or anything, just use echo

Code: Select all
/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0$ su -
Password:
root@host:/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0# echo 4 > brightness
root@host:/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0# echo 12 > brightness
