new beta driver does not fix this issue,

brightness fn-keys do work nice with nv, vesa, mesa driver's OR in tty1 console and so on.

the possible way to change the backlight brightness if nvidia driver is used(loaded):
ctrl+alt+f1 --> changing brightness with fn keys --> alt+f7 back to X with nvidia driver.

which DE are you using? if you set brightness to a certain value, does lowering the brightness in X decreases it to the lowest value? does blacklisting/unloading the video module changes something?

because there has been an update in hal, and apps like gnome-power-manager have only been updated recently to comply.

see http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=469748 and http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/8712

well, one more time, i cannot change backlight brightness if nvidia driver is loaded!!!!!!!!! (just nothing changes)

well, i have tested in X this drivers: nv, vesa, mesa
and brightness keys do work just great, with this drivers i have tested.

brightness keys do work in tty1 console too.

I have same problem with adjusting LCD backlight brightness on my TOSHIBA Tecra S5.

When i finally managed to install driver and start X (because of Fedora core 8 bug), i've discovered that brightness controling doesn't work.

Using Fedora Core 8, KDE, kernel: 2.6.23.4-42fc8
Nvidia device: Nvidia quadro NVS 130M

As said redmary, I can adjust brightness in tty, and with nv, vesa, mesa drivers.
When I adjust brightness in tty and than i start X server, brightness keeps same in KDE as in tty.

So i actually can change brightness by starting and shutting down Xserver, but it isn't very comfortable.

Please, developers solve that problem.
