Slackware :: Adjust The Monitor Brightness?

Feb 24, 2011

Researching this problem, I find very often this solution:

echo -n 100 > /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCD/brightness
Unfortunately, I don't have that on my old PC:
ls -F --group-directories-first /proc/acpi/

Ubuntu :: How To Adjust Brightness

Jul 31, 2011

I just recently installed Xubuntu 11.04 and I want to adjust the brightness levels. I tried using the corresponding buttons on my laptop, but they aren't working. Where can I find the brightness settings on the OS?

I tried this thread: [URL] , but "Power Manager" didn't have that setting.

Fedora :: Adjust Screen Brightness

Mar 13, 2011

Running F14 on Dell Studio 14 with LCD screen and US keyboard selected. After initial power on the keyboard selection of "Windows Key" + F4 will dim the screen and the "Windows Key" + F5 will brighten the screen. When being used, either combination will also show a meter on the screen to display the adjustment of the brightness. When the lid is closed the computer is set to suspend by default. After the computer is brought back from suspend the keyboard short cuts no longer control the brightness and the meter does not appear on the screen. I have not found any other way to control the brightness and I have to restart to get the keyboard short cuts to work again.

Ubuntu :: Can't Adjust Display Brightness

May 28, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 lucid with gnome-power-manager installed on a HP elitebook 8530p. FN keys and desktop display applet will not adjust the display. when I first boot my display is pretty bright with either it plugged into ac or not until i either plug or unplug for the first time then the display dims some, but will not get bright again plugged or unplugged, also /proc/acpi/video/DGFX/LCD/brightness shows it set to 100% at all times it never changes. I'm using the ati driver tried running aticonfig --acpi-services off, but it made no difference. It worked fine in karmic and ibex. I'm out of ideas on how to fix this one. Can anyone point me in the right direction on what to try next?

Debian :: Can't Adjust Screen Brightness Using Fn Keys?

Nov 24, 2015

When I first install debian I couldn't change the screen brightness at all not manually nor with function keys, but I tried some of the solutions I found on the internet and now I can change the brightness manually (from the power management or the battery icon) but when I use the function keys it takes them like 2 to 3 minutes to respond and cause the system to hang (even mouse curser not responding) and then I'm forced to manually reboot the system, here is some information :

Code: Select all$ ls /sys/class/backlight/
acpi_video0  intel_backlight
Code: Select all$cat /etc/default/grub
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

[Code] .....

And I've tried this:

Code: Select allsudo -i kwrite /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

And I add the following in this file

Code: Select allSection "Device"
        Identifier  "card0"
        Driver      "intel"
        Option      "Backlight"  "intel_backlight"
        BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"

Fedora :: Adjust LCD Brightness (backlight) From Command Line?

Jul 10, 2010

I'm writing a script to toggle LCD backlight on my laptop between minimum and previous/current level. I will then assign this script to a button. For this I need to be able to adjust backlight by using some command line utility. Also, this must be possible to be performed by a regular user.

What I have already tried:

1) The "xbacklight" utility. This didn't work. Program reported something like "no outputs found".

2) Used "acpitool -l <backlight_level>". This didn't work either.

3) The "echo -n 100 > /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCD/brightness" works only when I am root. Changing permission of the file to allow writes by a user only valid until reboot. After reboot I need to change permission again, so this approach is not good either.

What works on my laptop, but with GUI:

1) Adjusting LCD brightness in "System->Preferences->Power Management" works.

2) Adjusting brightness with Gnome Brightness Applet works. However, after changing brightness with applet it says "Cannot get laptop panel brightness" and shows red crossed circle icon. Even after applet shows this message, it is possible to change the backlight level. It seems like the brightness level cannot be retrieved by the applet/system, but it can be set.

I can see that it is definitely possible to adjust LCD brightness through software because of the 2 things above, but how do I allow any user to change it from command line?

So, what are my other possible choices for changing backlight from command line?

General :: Unable To Adjust The Brightness Of The Netbook Screen?

Apr 19, 2010

Long, sad story made short. I have a Samsung Netbook running Windows XP Home, SP3. I set it up to dual boot with Ubuntu, just so I could play around with Ubuntu. Well, Ubuntu started giving me trouble: my internet connection went south, I was unable to adjust the brightness of the Netbook screen, etc., and when I looked for troubleshooting help on the internet, it was all Greek to me as it involved working with Terminal.

I did a search for removing a partition in Windows XP and found "How to use Disk Management to configure basic disks in Windows XP" on the Microsoft and followed the instructions there.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04.1 - Need To Reduce Monitor Brightness

Dec 19, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04.1
Nvidia gpu ( Asus GeForce GTS 450 Series graphic card)
DVI connection to monitor (Dell 2405)

Using a VGA connection I can use the buttons on the monitor to control both contrast and brightness. Using dvi there is no control(no contrast control and the brightness button changes the numbers but not the actual brightness!) I cannot find the app that controls the Nvidia GPU
(it should exist as I found it on Zenwalk).

Hardware :: Increase LCD Monitor Brightness With Software?

Aug 6, 2010

I have a ViewSonic V1912Wb-4-- It recently got broken. I got to it repaired. However I cant force the brightness or the contrast of the monitor to increase or decrease, it is just stuck!

In my WinXP I can adjust this with software-- however I cant change anything on my slackware 12.2!

Do you think I need to install softwares like Argyll CMS?

I am using the default graphics drivers. I cant find anything for my built in graphics card of my Asus motherboard P5S-MX SE.

General :: Quick Way To Change Monitor Brightness At Night?

Dec 8, 2010

I'm a fairly nocturnal creature by nature, but life requires me to spend more time during the bright hours of day. I also have a visual impairment which makes it that my eyes take a very long time to adjust to darker situations. I need to be able to easily dim my screen so that using my computer doesn't keep me awake as much and doesn't prevent me from doing other stuff.

I will accept both a hotkey based solution "like on most laptop" as a timed one. My main monitor lacks simple brightness/contrast controls. f.lux doesn't suit my needs, since it only changes the screen's color temperature. I'd like the solution to work regardless of the make and model of the video card involved. Wearing sunglasses is impractical, since they make it hard to interact with objects around my computer.

Debian Hardware :: Control Screen Brightness With DDC / CI Capable Monitor

Jul 5, 2014

I bought a new computer, pretty awesome machine, AMD FX6300 with a Radeon 260X graphics. Along I bought a new Led monitor AOC with DDC/CI capability.

It is my understanding that with the DDC/CI, monitors can have their brightness controlled just like laptop screens do, but better software controlled.

This is something I have done before with nvidia graphics, the open drive had the control and the proprietary only needed a small config setting. This was done however in a dekstop iMac, the screen also LED and HDMI.

So I just freshly installed debian jessie in this setup, it seems the open source driver does a pretty good job, but still missing the brightness control and audio through HDMI doesn't work either.

Slackware :: Couldn't Adjust The PCM Volume From Either Alsamixer Or Amixer

Apr 29, 2010

I've just switched to slackware from opensuse (and before ubuntu) for few days. Everything is ok , no, is awesome when I was doing my job on run level 3. However, I found there was no sound when I booted it to run level 4 (xfce) trying to play some music on yesterday. After googled a lot, I thought there must be some wrong with my alsa driver, because I couldn't adjust the PCM volume from either alsamixer or amixer. In fact, there is even no PCM section in it, but two sections named "IEC958" and "IEC958 D" instead with no "pvolume" capability. Here is some outputs:

bash-3.1# cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xefffc000 irq 21


ps: I've reinstalled alsa-lib, alsa-oss, alsa-utils from the installation dvd, no use
