Postby virtualandi on Thu Jun 28, 2007 1:18 pm

got an acer aspire 5630 laptop, duo-core intel.
Got mint on it, love it!
BUT! tHE SCREEN IS QUITE DARK. tried to mess with envy to get the right driver and it killed the GUI!
this is where i am still at, having tried some of the solutions suggested here in this forum.

does anyone have any idea how i can:

A) Get the gui back
B) Alter the brightness/contrast on the lcd screen

yours hopefully

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If by gui you mean xserver, you can try reconfiguring it with the following command:
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg


With lcd brightness, have you tried holding the "Fn" (function) key on your laptop and pushing the up/down brightness keys?
