… for example Fn+F8 and Fn+F9 are supposed to be the brightness control, …

For cases where it seems that brightness is difficult or impossible to control, I can recommend:
  1. Gammy – accessibility/gammy
  2. the brightness feature of sysutils/lxqt-config.
Use one or the other but probably not both. (Things might appear weird if you use the LXQt utility after starting Gammy.)

Gammy is very smartly automated. Since I began using it, I have rarely thought about brightness … YMMV.

For the LXQt utility, either:
  • lxqt-config then click Brightness or
  • lxqt-config-brightness to open Brightness Settings without the Configuration Centre.

I am using accessibility/gammy with Thinkpad T495 and it works very good.
