Bug Description

Hewlett Packard - HP Envy 14 1095la
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/druellan/precise-hpenvy1095la

What I expect:
Consistent brightness indicator, consistent use of keyboard shortcuts while using both integrated and dedicated graphic adapters.

What I get:
Using the Intel integrated adapter:
- Keyboard shortcuts work
- Indicator shows only 5 levels of brightness, from 10 real working levels
- Brightness settings slider does NOT change the brightness in any way
- At bootup the brightness resets to 0 (backlight off).

Using the dedicated adapter:
- Keyboard shortcuts does NOT work
- Indicator does NOT work
- Brightness settings slider does NOT change the brightness in any way
- At bootup the brightness resets to 0 (backlight off).
