Screen Brightness

Postby hexdef101 on Sat Oct 05, 2013 4:52 pm

I have noticed a Glitch And I know its probably been mentioned. And this might not be the place but here is a simple fix without any coding.

Lm 14 (possibly other versions) seem to have issues with some systems when it comes to screen color and brightness. (mine is all the way up) this may have to do with the intel onboard graphics

A simple fix is to install Redshift, then use the following commands in terminal to fix it.

Code: Select all
redshift -O 6000 -m vidmode -g .45

Code: Select all
xbacklight -set 80

If Redshift is added to the Package list for the next version and a small in case of script is added to include those commands at Startup the Problem is fixed.
