Re: Can't Adjust LCD Backlight on Laptop

I tried that but I couldn't get the CTRL ALT F1 to cooperate. It gave me a whiny message about configuration and then when I tried to do it again to get the message, it just does a weird little flash at the very top of the screen and then no change. =/

Re: Can't Adjust LCD Backlight on Laptop

The solution brought by lagagnon is the best one. xrandr --output LVDS --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL native To make this run on every restart: You have to go to System > Preferences > Startup Application Preferences. Then Click on add. For the name, call it Screen Brightness (or anything you want) and pu...

Re: Help me stop missing Windows Media Player. Please.

Just wanted to follow up to this that Songbird was a good suggestion! I have two small issues with it: it doesn't support my hotkeys and it doesn't default come with a queue. Other than that, it is fitting my needs. I like it much better than other things I've tried (Amarok, Exaile) although I have ...

There are so many media players. I want one that will let me see which songs I've just imported or organize by date/time imported. I want to check tags on new stuff as I bring it in. Suggestions? Thanks! PS I would also like to be able to assign ratings to songs but it is sort of a pipe dream to hav...

Attached screenshot.

What do you think?
