The same issue. As workaround you can plug off the AC power and plug in again, then the brightness turns ...

Hi Kiesel, thanks for reminiding for this topic. I have bought this RV520 since 3 months. Ubuntu 11.04 is running with that well, but the backlight will be stay unsatisfactory.

Re: HOWTO: Use the repository on K/Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04

This is strange. Well, use this command to manually add the GPG key for the repository: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 1E5F36F0 then update the packages index: sudo apt-get update This command might be a little bi different, but its works well! :) Thank you a lot! :) :)
