Cannot Dim my display

Postby robc430 on Tue Nov 15, 2011 12:21 am

I just recieved an Acer Aspire TimeLineX 4830T and I installed Linux Mint Debian Edition. Everything works out of box except for the brightness controls. I can use the function keys on the laptop and it brings up the slider showing that the brightness is going down but it never actually does. Is there anyway I can fix this issue?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Found a fix, here it is if anyone needs it:

In Terminal:

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
Change the line :
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_osi=Linux"

Then run sudo update-grub and reboot.
