I try to change the screen brightness on Linux Mint! The keys are showing a change, but the screen keeps at full denisity. Changing the /sys/class/backlight/apple_backlight/backlight file has also no effect. Maybe an idea?

In addition to the hardware, please mention which Mint you are using and which desktop environment. –  terdon Jul 17 '13 at 14:06
