Screen brightness on XPS 13 9343 Developer Edition

The screen on my new XPS 13 can be quite bright when it is set to maximum brightness with a mostly white screen, like the Google search page full-screen. But when I maximize a terminal window, one with all the default settings in place, the screen dims to the point that the white text in the window is barely readable in regular office lighting. A quick alt-tab change between the Google search page and the terminal window results in bright easily readable text that dims over a few seconds. This makes the computer difficult to use in a number of cases, and shows that it can be bright, but I don't have adequate control over it.

I've looked around for a solution, but I only see ones for Windows. Is there any solution for Linux? I'm still running the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS that was preinstalled.
