Re: HOWTO: Use the repository on *buntu 12.04 LTS

Works like a charm. For nvidia cards additionally install nvidiabl driver from official git repo and follow instructions there.

Just installed it. It works. But the driver does not start automatically.
And I cannot control the brightness with FN+up/down buttons.

Re: Backlight on Samsung RV520
