Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

It makes no difference on AC power or Battery. When I start up the laptop the screen brightness is always HIGH.
It was perfect working in Ubuntu 9.10.

@ jatin You need not send another bug report if it is the same problem as mentioned above. You just need to change the status of this bug from 'new' to 'confirmed'. Filing new bug will only be duplication. However, if you have already filed the bug, could you please mention the bug number, so it can be verified in marked duplicate if necessary. And, thanks for helping make Ubuntu better.
