Cannot set brightness : 11.1 gnome on thinkpad sl300


I cannot set brightness of lcd screen on my thinkpad sl300 laptop

Here are a few details :

  • opensuse version 11.1 gnome, fully updated as of oct 19th 2009
  • INstalled laptop tools
  • default Brightness is kinda dimmed
  • fn keys or power management have NO effect on brightness
  • Graphic driver is intel 4500m
  • I’ve have no problems like that with other distros on this laptop (ubuntu, fedora, PClinux, mandriva to name a few)

Anyone can help?

My R61 with kde4 has issues, but the Fn keys work
