How to increase/decrease brightness?

Just installed fedora c3 on a friends toshiba portege m100

It has hotkeys on the keyboard which i can use under windows, and when i boot into fedora, i cant manage to find any settings to change the brightness of the screen, it's always full brightness.

Anyone know how i can change it?
