It is XFCE and there is Power Manager which allows to change the
brightness. However since I upgraded from Jessie to Stretch the
brightness settings are not preserved between the sessions (after
reboot the brightness is at 100%). In Jessie there was no issue.

I always sets about 50% so for me it would be no issue. The issue is
that it is always 100% and hurts my eyes. Maybe I should report this as
a bug.
