[UIFe] Re-enable brightness widget

Bug Description

gnome-shell 3.12 includes a widget in the User Menu to adjust screen brightness, we have had this disable so far this cycle since it required gnome-settings-daemon 3.12 but now that has happened would like to re-enable the widget.

It won't affect any screenshots that we have in the installer etc, and gnome-shell only has upstream translations (I believe), so the strings should likely be already translated

Here is an upstream screenshot showing the brightness slider below volume:

Hi Tim,

Trying to understand what User Menu you are referring to. Or is this a pure Ubuntu GNOME thing?

As regards ubuntu-docs, it has already been released for 14.10, so if it affects Ubuntu/Unity somehow, it will be an undocumented feature. Suppose it's ok.

Gunnar, It only affects gnome-shell/Ubuntu GNOME (not unity), but I was asked by the release team to get docs team approval

Sure, I can 'approve' it on behalf of the docs team if it matters, but the Ubuntu GNOME specific documentation is not under our umbrella. ;)
