xbrightness sets the overall brightness of a monitor via the XFree86
X server video mode extension (XFree86-VidMod‐Extension).
It uses the XF86VidModeSetGammaRamp function, which provides a
more flexible control than the old XF86VidMode‐SetGamma. The latter
function cannot change the endpoints of the gamma curve, only the
middle, so full brightness remains full brightness no matter how you
set the gamma.
