Can't regulate brightness anymore after updates from repo

Postby Tobi_2006 » 06/12/2009, 2:12

Hello!

I am using Karmic Koala (NR) on my NC-10 and installed the scripts and repositories from this website a while back. I never had any problems with them (thanks a lot for such excellent coding!), but since I installed an automatic update (Kernel and NC-10 Scripts) yesterday, the combination FN+up/down to regulate the brightness does not work anymore. Everything else looks fine.

Is there any way to get this back?

Thanks,
Tobi

I've updated the 'nc10-backlight' package for the new kernel.
So, check again for updates, and install it. ;)

My package manager seems to have withheld the package from the automatic upgrade, but a simple "sudo apt-get install nc10-backlight" solved it. Thanks a lot - you are doing a fantastic job here!

Hi,

I have the same problem on my nc10. After the update, the brightness did not work so I deleted your repository and have reinstalled but the problem was still there.

I tried installing "NC10-backlight" but always the same, it does not work :(

The 'nc10-backlight' package (now renamed as 'samsung-backlight') is for kernel 2.6.31-17 only (the latest one available on ubuntu standard repositories, not proposed, which I do not support).
Probably you have enabled the proposed repositories and now you are using the kernel 2.6.31-18.
If this is the case and you want to use my backlight package, you have to revert to 2.6.31-17.
