I edited the
xconf file, and added this line to device section:
Enable brightness control=1
Now I am able to adjust brightness, but after every restart the brightness setting change back to 100%.
Is there any solution for this?

To adjust brightness in xubuntu or ubuntu Open a terminal window, and execute this command to edit /etc/rc.local:
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
Add this before the last line “exit 0″:

If you want to change the screen brightness in Ubuntu
(I can’t change it using the keyboard shortcuts or the Ubuntu Power Management menu),
open a terminal and execute the following:
sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=xx
Where xx is the desired brightness in hex ranging from 0 (brightest) to FF (no brightness at all). I usually change it to E0 when working on battery.
