According to Apple's support site, some Apple Cinema Display models
have external controls, others do not. Apparently this user's display
does not. (In that case, brightness would be set through System
Preferences, using Mac OSX... but of course this user doesn't have
that option.)

Maybe the user could swap his display for a PC-style display over
Craigslist? Mac Mini's can use any old monitor, so maybe...
