Re: CLI Command for Keyboard Background Lightning

Do the Fn+F3 and Fn+F4 function keys actually work in increasing and decreasing the keyboard backlight? Does running the following command turn on the backlight: echo 3 > /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlight/brightness If that doesn't work try this: echo 3 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlig...

Re: VertTwoFingerScroll setting keeps being forgotten

You can try this method. Temporarily disable the startup application command you created by unchecking the box next to it. Open Nemo and go to “/user/share/X11/xorg.conf.d”. Right click on the file “50-synaptics.conf” and select “Open as Root”. Then open the file and add these two lines: Option "Ver...

Re: VertTwoFingerScroll setting keeps being forgotten

Can you post the result of running this command in the Terminal: xinput

Do you have this file: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf

It's on my Mint 14 system but not my Mint 15 system. However, you may have it since you have a laptop.

Re: xbmc crashes my computer

Re: Unable to adjust brightness in Sony Vaio - VPCEG3AEN

JonM You could install the proprietary graphics driver for your AMD graphics hardware and try adjusting the brightness through the catalyst control center which is installed with it. Or you will have to try a newer kernel. If you already are using Mint 15, then try one of these. I have tested them w...

Re: Mint 15 - Samsung backlit keyboard

The folders in your list are for screen brightness control, not keyboard backlight. Every topic I've read on Samsung backlight control for series 7 and 9 lists the location of files in /sys/class/leds or /sys/devices/platform. Be sure to go to these locations and look for any folders with the word s...

Then you would have to download a proprietary driver from the AMD website. Here is the link for the Catalyst 9.3 Linux Driver, which supports your video hardware. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/legacy/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx?type=2.4.2&product=2.4.2.3.4&lang=us&rev=9.3&ostype=Linux%20x8...

Re: Reverse 2 and 3-finger tapping on synaptics touchpad

That's strange why you had to change the original command. Perhaps there was an error in one of the letters, characters or spacing, or the name of the touchpad was listed more than once when the xinput command was used. Either method should work but the advantage of using the words is that the id nu...

If you look at the property: Synaptics Tap Action (280): 2, 3, 0, 0, 1, 3, 0 there are seven numbers after 280, which is the id number of that property. These numbers correspond to the mouse button that is reported when tapping on different areas of the touchpad. The first four numbers correspond to...

Re: Mint 15 - Samsung backlit keyboard

It appears that the exact product name of your laptop is 700Z3C or 700Z5C. Whichever it is, you need to go back and replace the name 700Z with the correct product name. 700Z was used six times in making two files and two other lines in two other files. You will need to right click each file and sele...
