Last update seems to have taken out brightness adjustment?

Postby newfie on Mon Dec 20, 2010 8:40 am

I updated last night for the first time for roughly a week. I noticed some things such as desktop-base and all that.

- I can't use the keyboard shortcut for brightness.
- The brightness applet has a red slash through it and does nothing
- Battery applet used to have a slider bar for brightness; no longer there.

Anything that may have caused this? It also seems to be sucking the life of my battery a lot more than normal; my battery is losing roughly 4% a minute. I usually get an hour and a half of life, but the laptop's only been on for under 20 minutes and already it's at 55% left.

Here's the update log:
