I was having the same problem for lenovo z500 IDEAPAD. I used following steps sudo -i cd /sys/class/backlight/ ls gives output: ideapad intel_backlight After these I tried to change brightness value by these commands for both the ideapad and intel_backlight: sudo echo 3 > ideapad/brightness and sudo echo 3 > intel_backlight/brightness
The file /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness contains the brightness information. So you can just set the desired brightness by a command like this: echo 500 >/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness (the range of brightness is generally up to 950).
