I have a MacBook Pro 11,3 (Late 2013) with Fedora 25 dual booting through GRUB. The brightness keys do not have any effect on the screen brightness however, volume keys work fine. I'm using the nouveau driver (not NVIDIA).

Arch has a patch but I can't find anything similar on Fedora. patch: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/...keys.2FSuspendsupport

also setpci -v -H1 -s 00:01.00 BRIDGE_CONTROL=0 has worked for me on other distros but has no effect in fedora 25.
