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:

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.

usually I get lights on keyboard by using xset led 3 does the macpro have a button to turn lights on? I have a thinkpad and using fedora, for that is fn + spacebar.
