Ubuntu :: Kubuntu 10.4 Screen Brightness Slider Doesn't Have An Effect?

Oct 8, 2010

I ran Kubuntu 10.4 from the Live CD and from the start The screen was automatically set to be as dim as possible, but in the power manager the brightness is set to be as bright as possible. Moving around the slider doesn't do nothing, and when I click the battery icon in the tray, it shows another brightness slider that's set to dim as possible, when I move it around it has no effect and just goes back to where it was when I close the popup window. Right now I'm running from the livedisk on an IBM T42 thinkpad laptop.How do I fix this, is it a hardware issue, I've had problems with my graphics card in the past with compositing in X/Ubuntu.I've found some text files for the backlight, they're all set to 0 which I believe is the problem, however even though I'm running the File Manager as root with kdesudo and the permissions are set to read and write for the owner, who is root, I can't save any changes.

Debian Hardware :: Getting Lenny Working On Macbook / Can't Use Brightness Keys To Change Screen Brightness?

Feb 9, 2010

I'd been trying to get into Linux before I bought it so I figured that I would try to get it onto my new Mac so that I could use it wherever I am. I decided to try Debian Lenny 5.0.3 a whirl after reading about all the different distros available. I've successfully installed it and I can get to it with rEFIt, and I have quite a few things working such as the video drivers and wifi. However, I've had trouble getting it to a level where it'd be usable away from home. Here are the main problems I'm worried about:

1) I installed pommed but I still can't use the brightness keys to change the screen brightness. I'm not sure if there's some other workaround for this?

2) I tried some recommended power management packages (gnome-power-manager) but it doesn't seem to be accessible or functional right now. I don't have any way to control it or get to it that is obvious to me. Is an icon or anything supposed to appear on the task bar when you install or what? Getting some sort of power management on here is important because it gets really lousy battery life otherwise.

3) Being a Macbook, there's no right-click button. Multitouch would be really nice (two-finger scrolling!) but I'd be OK with ANY way to right-click with the touchpad. I have a wireless USB keyboard/mouse combo that works at home at least . . . right out of the box too!

4) I've seen some packages called the Mactel PPA, but they are made for Ubuntu. Since Debian and Ubuntu are so similar, is there any way to make those work on Lenny? I think that if I got those to work, I could fix some of the problems above. Or do I have to install Ubuntu?

5) I just noticed that the sound doesn't seem to work yet either.

i've just put on a fresh install of natty narwhal, and the volume slider in the top right corner doesn't work. if i move it all the way left to 0, the sound goes off, but anything non-zero seems to be full volume. i searched a bit , tried fiddling around in alsamixer , and gconf-editor -> apps->gnome_settings_daemon->volume_step but couldn't get any useful result.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Freezes Constantly - Login Sound Effect Doesn't Play

Jul 2, 2011

I have an Acer Travelmate 630(14.1" model) running Ubuntu 11.04 and I have experienced a frequent amount of freezing. Usually when I log in, the login sound effect doesn't play, the cursor turns into a wheel which changes back to the normal cursor, then changes into the wheel, but frozen. At this point the computer has completely frozen, nothing moving, no input of any kind responisive, and I have to hard reboot. Several times after that the problem goes away and I am able to log in and use it normally. I also experienced freezing when loading up Ubuntu Software Centre and using Firefox.

Sometimes after leaving it for a while, the problem is gone, but after an hour or two completely freezes again. Everything on the machine is stock, apart from upgraded 1GB RAM and 60GB HDD. And I use an external monitor because the internal one has a damaged cable(replacement coming soon). Are there anyways I can track down the problem? I have already uninstalled compiz and am running Ubuntu Classic mode. I am happy to downgrade to 9.04 as that is compatible with my USB WiFi adaptor without doing complex stuff, but would like to solve the problem on 11.04.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Resolution Change Doesn't Take Effect?

Feb 10, 2010

1. The resolution change (from 1024*768 to 1680*1050)could not be saved to /etc/X11/xorg.conf2. After I manually changed the /etc/X11/xorg.conf, it could not take effect when I restart my suse. On restarting, it firstly 1680*1050, then jump back to 1024*768.How I resolved it: 1. When click "Save to X configuration", save the xorg.conf to user directory, then manually copy it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf using root privilege. (sudo cp ...) 2. change the resolution to 1680*1050 in nvdia-settings, then click "apply", after it takes effect, go to "control center" - "display", you will find the resolution here has been changed to 1680*1050, then press apply, restart suse, you get 1680*1050.Some details:(1) I have a nvdia GeForce 6150SE on board video card, and suse11.2(2) I installed nvdia driver through NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE

Debian Configuration :: Why /etc/fonts/local.conf Doesn't Take Effect

I have used /etc/fonts/local.conf to control how the fonts looks like in my laptop, which runs a Gentoo. In particular, I don't want anti-aliasing. I copied the file to my Debian desktop, but it seems the file doesn't take effect, even after reboot. Do I need to do something else to make it take effect?

Ubuntu :: Screen Brightness Twitching And Freaking Out?

Jan 22, 2010

My laptop with Ubuntu 9.10 just randomly while adjusting the brightness using the shortcut key commands on my laptop the brightness started to glitch between two brightness levels. If I don't use the shortcut keys it doesn't glitch unless I shut the screen or restart the computer. So I've had to put up with this for the past couple months now and I think that it might even drive me to reinstall but then I lose all my data.

Ubuntu :: Screen Brightness Randomly Changing?

Jan 3, 2011

Sometimes, out of the blue, my screen will suddenly change brightness. And no, not the gnome power manager dimming the screen when idle, I'm talking about it suddenly going from dimmest to brightest when I haven't even touched the screen brightness buttons in the last few minutes.

what package would I file this bug against)? This is Maverick on a thinkpad T60, and I can provide any other information that people find relevant. On what may be a related note, it seems that one push of the screen brightness up or down buttons causes two increments in brightness.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Screen Brightness Permanently 100%?

May 11, 2011

I originally installed Maverick on my Macbook 5.1 using rEFIt to dual boot. For some reason, after installing Compiz my screen brightness functionality stopped working. It was permanently 100%. I thought that upgrading to Natty might work, but no luck. So far I've tried changing the brightness manually in terminal and in power-management, editing the grub file and also reinstalling compiz, all to no avail. Trying to alter brightness using the fn keys displays the brightness panel in the top right, and it decreases in value as it should, but the screen stays bright. The brightness settings work fine when I boot to Mac.

Ubuntu :: Screen Brightness Changes Arbitrarily (lucid)?

Feb 1, 2011

on my fairly new ubuntu install (10.04.1 LTS) on a laptop, the screen brightness changes seemingly at random, i.e. while I do other things like surf the web. Often, the brightness will decrease some (it does not fade to black as reported by others with similar problems) and come back a few seconds later

Ubuntu :: Changing Brightness Of A Selected Screen Area

Apr 9, 2010

if there is a way of selecting a specific area of the screen and increase brightness? The thing is that I had to reduce my monitor brightness and contrast, due to recurring headaches. The new configuration is fine for most applications, but videos on web pages are too dark. I have created a script that allows me to change nvidia settings quickly, but when switching to the brighter setup my eyes hurt even if it is just for a moment. So I would like to be able to brighten a specific area of the screen.

Ubuntu :: Software Method To Reduce Screen Brightness?

Aug 10, 2010

I have a netbook with LED backlight, but even the lowest brightness of the screen is still very bright and eye straining in a dark environment. On Windows and MacOSX there are simple tools that put a borderless more or less transparent black window in front of everything on the screen to reduce brightness even further.Are there such tools for Ubuntu or other means of achieving the same result?

Ubuntu :: Dim Screen - Cannot Change Brightness Settings On Netbook

Nov 18, 2010

I bought a Asus eeepc a few days ago which I really like, with the exception of one thing - windows 7 starter. I like Windows 7, but starter is just bad. I also really like ubuntu, so I've decided to put it on my netbook. I download the netbook edition from the site, put it on a usb drive, and than tested it out - well, my screen is dim, very dim. Changing the brightness setting on the tool bar up top doesn't change anything, and using the function keys does change it, but still keeps it very dim.

I've tried restarting my computer, same thing, I've tried messing around with settings in the battery options, nothing... I really don't want to install it if its going to be this dark, I can see things, but its not very pleasant to use. I'm starting to consider that its the problem with the file I downloaded. Theres nothing wrong with my netbook, everything worked perfectly fine in Windows 7. I use the full version of ubuntu 10.04 on my other laptop which works perfectly fine, I'm not sure why this version is acting so weird on my netbook.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Monitors - Can't Stop Mirror Screen Effect

Aug 14, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 since it came out using two monitors, on the extended desktop option (the way I want it to be) with no problems. Today I unplugged the HDMI cable from my laptop and used it for my ps3 and now when I put the HDMI back in it will only run in the mirror desktop option. This is not acceptable to me as my 2nd monitor is a 50inch tv with a much higher resolution than my laptop.

When I uncheck the "Same image in all monitors" box it says to log out and back in. Doing this changes nothing(neither has restarting), it is still a mirrored screen.

When I click the detect monitors button absolutely nothing happens. Before today the detect monitors button did work.

How can I go about fixing this?

Edit: Also I just watched a show on the laptop and theres a lot of screen tearing, this didn't happen before.

Ubuntu :: Weird Split Screen Effect On Arcade Monitor / Fix It?

Aug 30, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu for a while on my laptop so I thought I'd also run it on my arcade machine. The monitor can handle a resolution up to at least 704x513 60hz (the resolution the original arcade game used) and uses composite sync. I've spent some time using xrandr to get the resolution, refresh rate and sync polarities that I need.

These are the commands I used to set my resolution.code...

But it has the same effect since I have the hsync and vsync wired into a composite sync anyway.

What I get is this weird split screen effect that's in the picture. It looks like I'm missing something I just cant figure it out!
