Brightness in xfce4-notifyd, similar to volumed?

I'd like to have the OSD that appears on brightness change to be used by the notifier (similar to how volumed works), so I can use it in a different DE that doesn't work with xfce4-power-manager (namely, gnome classic 12.04). Is this possible, short of putting together another xfce4-*d?

Speaking of xfce4-volumed when I installed xubuntu on a different computer the progress bar was an aesthetically-pleasing solid white color, and the part that it didn't color was just outlined. Meanwhile in ubuntu it just takes it from the gtk theme so it looks like below. Is there a fix for this, or maybe some package that xubuntu-desktop didn't include?

Ubuntu 12.04
Xfce 4.10
xubuntu-desktop 2.152+ppa2

(best-case scenario would be if someone made a notifyd/somethingd that takes care of both volume and brightness. not sure how much of a pipe dream that is though)

Sorry for necro, but I've figured out at least the second part. Turns out it's just a GTK2 progressbar widget. Ended up mucking around with gnome-color-chooser and awf-gtk2 until I got what I wanted:

Still looking for a way to handle the brightness, though.
