I saw no sign of them there.
Well, you shouldn't have to do anything. As long as xfce4-power-manager
is running the buttons normally work. :(

I do have buttons, but I don't see any effect.

I didn't have that; but yum installed it. It didn't put it
into the power manager, though. Maybe it's in need of a logout?
Thats a seperate command line utility. You run it from a shell...
xbacklight -set 10
(sets the brightness to 10%)
If that doesn't work, it would seem to me to be a kernel issue, not
detecting the backlight at all.
