  [Aspire V5-431]13.04: Brightness control visible but does nothing

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Brightness control visible but does nothing on 13.04...

  The brightness up down buttons shows the overlay brightness icon going
  up and down but it does not change the brightness (backlight).

  I have tried adjusting the kernel options acpi_osi=<x> and
  acpi_backlight=<y> (that did work with 12.10) to make it work but to
  no avail.
