This only works on my aluminum macbook, and iMac, it does not work on my mac pro with 30'' ACD.

Adjust brightness from Terminal
Authored by: sabi on Sep 15, '09 07:32:22PM
Yeah, unfortunately Apple doesn't have a documented way of controlling brightness over USB. The documented method only works with built-in and ADC displays.

Use the version I linked above (http://sabi.net/nriley/software/brightness.zip) instead; it uses the same method as the Displays preference pane does.
