After upgrading, I can no longer control the brightness of my monitor with Fn+ and Fn+.

Open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and write:

gksudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

Type in your password, then copy-paste the following text into gedit:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "card0"
        Driver      "intel"
        Option      "Backlight"  "intel_backlight"
        BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"

and save again!
