Re: Backlight / Brightness for R580

Hello,

Googling nvidia-bl-dkms brought me to the ppa:mactel-support/ppa . Did you install the 0.17.3~natty version? Or did you find something better?

Thanks!

Re: Backlight / Brightness for R580

Hello, I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 and I tried to apply the solution above. It worked perfectly for me with Ubuntu 11.10 -thanks again!- but now it just prevents the computer from booting correctly. I get a black screen after the ubuntu logo, no logon screen. My /etc/X11/xorg.conf is different though...

Great! It worked for me too!

Awesome! It lasted so long I even stopped hoping. What a relief.

Have a great day!

Re: Backlight / Brightness for R580

Problem solved. In file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" I always add "magic" line in "device" section, but it should be in "screen" section. On login it set backlight to 100% but it's better than 20% (before) Hi ! I am not sure to understand how to modify my xorg.conf file. It is currently looling like this: ...

Re: Backlight / Brightness for R580

I tried your commands and, indeed, it does not work. cat brightness gave me the following output: levels: 7 13 20 30 45 60 80 100 current: 7 And echo 45 > brightness changed well the current brightness to level 45 but without any viewable effect. You said that the "low-level" interface does not work...

Re: Backlight / Brightness for R580

Hello ! I finally found some time to apply your advice. I made the script and changed the sudoers file as you indicated (except that I replace michel with my user name). Running the script, i.e. double-clicking it, did have an effect. When I pressed the Fn+Brightness hotkeys (only once), the notific...

Re: Backlight / Brightness for R580

@mdhooge:
I'd like to try the script you proposes but as I am using the gnome desktop (Ubuntu 10.04), there is no such folder as ~/.kde/Autostart/ or someting similar in the ~/.gnome2/ folder. Do you have an idea of where I should place that script ?

Thanks

Brightness level can't be changed - Samsung R730

Hello, I just discovered your work and I first wanted to thank you for all your work. I have a Samsung R730 with Ubuntu 10.04 64bits installed. I had the joy to see all my hotkeys working once I installed samsung-tools and the others from the ppa. There is nonetheless a surpise : pressing the bright...
