Did you install archbang i3? Or arch and then i3 on it? You might try searching from command line:
Code:
$ pacman -Ss pkg_name

Hope this helps! :)

You will have to configure your i3 to use "XF86MonBrightnessUp" and "XF86MonBrightnessDown" with the appropriate actions that causes your screen to become brighter or less bright. See the i3 FAQ archive.
