Is there any app to control auto brightness in fedora? But maybe using webcam because my laptop has no light sensor, or maybe based on time

I do not think, your webcam has the ability to measure the intensity of light. In phones, there is a light sensor that measures the intensity of the light falling on it and adjusts the brightness of your LCD screen. I have never come across a laptop (not tablets/netbook) that has got a built in light sensor.

redshift might be used for that. It does not control the brightness however it sets color temperature of display according to time of day.
