    Awesome, thanks. I had issues with my screen being very dim and virtually unreadable. after installing this applet I was able to adjust the screen brightness to a readable level. Thank you again.

    Hi.
    I have also downloaded this application.
    Same problem as Akshay above: “No backlights found in your system”.
    Any idea?
