    It was impossible to adjust the brightness on my Sony Viao running Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon. I tried lots of different solutions without success But finally this one worked. Thanks!!!!

    Thanks ! The first solution that works on my laptop.
    But it starts from a default dark brightness that I can’t set for the moment. Still searching….

    Thanks a lot. This saved my life.
    I have been having the brightness problem for a long time, it happened in Ubuntu 12.04, Mint 15, 16 and 17.
    I only managed to work it out in Mint 15, and the Mint 17 is showing no sign of correcting it. So disappointing that they let this persist for so long.
    Could you please give some guidance in breaking down your programme into 2 parts, one adding up brightness and the other lowering it down, so I could then bind them to some keyboard shortcuts to mimic the Fn keys?
    Thanks again.
