Re: Backlight / Brightness for R580

Can you check first that the "low-level" interface is OK?

Here are commands that work in my case:

Code: Select all

sudo -i
cd /proc/acpi/video/NVID/LCD
cat brightness
#levels:  7 13 20 30 45 60 80 100
# current: 20
echo 45 > brightness
If this doesn't work, your problem is before the point I described.

Hello

I also had problem with brightness on my R580, using a 64-bits kubuntu edition. You could try the workaround I found: http://www.voria.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=485

Backlight / Brightness for R580

Here are my experiments with using the back-light of my R580. I first reported them in the thread http://www.voria.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=3686#p3686 but I think it is now better to create a dedicated thread :-) To summarize, I've installed Kubuntu 64bits, enabled the nvidia proprietary driver and...
