Samsung R530

Post by Cymoud » 31/07/2010, 11:49

Hello, I have a new Samsung R530 with Ubuntu 10.04 x64 and I installed your packages :
easy-slow-down-manager
phc-intel
samsung-backlight
samsung-tools
samsung-wireless and samsung-wireless-2.6.32-24
linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic (2.6.32-24.39~ppa1~loms~lucid)
With this, the Wifi and Backlight switch works good but I can't manage the level of backlight, I can see the side bar with Fn + Up and Fn + Down but no effect on the backlight.
I found the file /usr/src/samsung_backlight-0.13.1/samsung-backlight.c with the package samsung-backlight. I will try to add this in it :

Code: Select all

	{
		.ident = "R530/R730",
		.matches = {
			DMI_MATCH(DMI_SYS_VENDOR, "SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD."),
			DMI_MATCH(DMI_PRODUCT_NAME, "R530/R730"),
			DMI_MATCH(DMI_BOARD_NAME, "R530/R730"),
		},
		.callback = dmi_check_cb,
	},
I tell you that to let you add it to your next build and I would like to know how to build and install it to support my laptop.
Manufacturer: SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD.
Product Name: R530/R730
Thank you :)

Hi there,

You might want to have a look at:

Pretty much everything worked for me there.
