    Hi

    Seeing as I have lost my brightness slider in Prefs/Displays and my F1 F2 Keys do not function as the brightness control
    can anybody suggest a brightness App I can use ?

    Well other than Shades or Brightness because both of those mess with your colour profile/profiles.


    Thanks

    There should be keys on the keyboard for it. Go to System Preferences>Display and change the brightness from there is needed.

    I did say that I have no Brightness Slider, the one in Prefs/Display therefore my F1 and F2 keys do not function as the brightness control as they should.

    Shades. Haven't tried it but it sounds like it does what you want.

    It sounds like you have a bigger problem if you have no brightness slider and the brightness keys do not work. Try an Archive and Install. If that does not work, take a trip to the Genius Bar and see what they have to say.

    Are you using the F-keys as function keys in System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse, or do they just not respond at all?

    F1 and F2 work as normal function keys they just do not work at controlling the brightness.

    I have a feeling this is a USB problem with my Mac Pro...

    Try an archive and install as suggested earlier, if that won't work call Apple if you still have warranty.
