Flickering brightness on N130

Postby oddray » 14/10/2011, 18:21

Hello,

i have a problem: the brightness starts flickering as soon as the brightness-level gets adjusted automatically or manually. It is basically jumping between the diffrent brightness levels all the time.
I managed in 11.04 by pressing fn+ volume up/down, then it stopped.
Now i naively upgraded to 11.10 and the problem can't be helped by this trick anymore. Also processes get slowed down drastically...
Different settings in bios, power or screen-brightness don't have any effect.

Hope to hear some ideas or will i have to go back to an earlier version?

greetings.

Install also samsung-backlight (I had the flickering problem with only the new samsung-tools installed)

You can do "rmmod samsung-laptop" as a workaround...
