I see the ppa hasn't been updated yet, but I'm trying to compile from source and run this in Ubuntu 14.04 and even after installing xbacklight I'm seeing this issue on a MacBookAir4,2:

./lightum
 Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

Hi, satmandu!
I was getting the same error this morning and I was able to debug lightum. I just ran the program with the flag -U, which is used to ignore session, and it worked as usual.

Wow. I have been frustrated for several weeks on trying to get this to run because it is an awesome application. Solution is so simple...

I did not had much time to actually identify the problem on the code. I will try, as soon as possible, to debug more deeply and look for a better solution that can be placed into the source code. Because, as bwh1969 said, this application is really awesome! : )

Please take a look at my branch as I've made changes for it to work with systemd while replacing dbus-glib with GDbus: https://github.com/esoleyman/lightum
