Hi all,

Today I did an upgrade of kde-plasma to version 5.12.0, now I can no longer use fn+(f2/f3) to adjust screen brightness. I can still use the slider in the power widget in the taskbar. How would I go about debugging this? I had a look at dmesg which doesn't show anything out of the ordinary.

Here are the exact changes I made:

Might be unrelated but kde-plasma/powerdevil has gained a new USE flag ( brightness-control ) and a new dependency (app-misc/ddcutil) with this release. Check the USE flags settings on powerdevil.

Nope, that didn't change anything that I can see. Turns out I'm not the only one with this problem, it has been reported on kde's bugtracker: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=389845
