Bug Description

Using Fn+F6/Fn+F7 to set brightness has a bug. From 0% to 100% (or vice versa) there are 3,5 steps. The last half step is problematic. You have to use Fn+F7+F7+F7+F6+F7 to get to 100% or Fn+F6+F6+F6+F7+F6 to get to 0%.
My suggestion is to halve the increment/decrement step size.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.

Yes, still it is. However, it seems to be only a visual bug in Natty. The progress bar behaves much the same, but the actual brightness now follows commands.
