There is no
/dev/ support in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). There is a Microsoft User Voice Page where you can comment your needs for such support. Currently 779 people have voted for this feature. You can post a comment linking back to this question and pointing out how the feature is needed to install your software.
For myself it would be great to have
/sys/class/backlight support. It seems every WSL user has something they’d like supported in future versions.
