Re: unable to change screen brightness on HP8570p

If I understand your recommendation well, I think my grub file allready is in the state you reccomend, here it is: Here is your grub file below. Look at line 6. GRUB_DEFAULT=0 #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=10 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || e...

Re: bightness issue on new lenovo - intel graphics

I'm surprised because you said in your last post that you had already tried all of my suggestions and none worked. You can check if the newer kernel is being used by going to Menu > Preferences > System Information and highlighting "Operating System" in the list on the left side. In Synaptic there w...

Re: bightness issue on new lenovo - intel graphics

A BIOS update has also helped some people. I assume there were no other video drivers available. I couldn't find any on the Lenovo home website. Another command that has been used is Setpci. I mention it last because it can potentially cause problems, including system crashes. Do your own research o...

Open Synaptic Package Manager and do a search for radeontool. Then if you hightlight the word, information will be displayed about the program, along with a warning. There isn't much information on it if you do an internet search, however, one site did say that the program should not be used. You ca...

Re: unable to change screen brightness on HP8570p

So you have 2 problems now. You can't boot to the desktop in Mint Cinnamon or KDE? If its Cinnamon, do you see a Grub boot menu during system startup? If not, then hold down the Shift key after starting your computer. Look for an entry on the menu that says "Previous linux versions". Select it and h...

Re: bightness issue on new lenovo - intel graphics

Sorry to hear about that Grub line causing a major problem. It's one of the least used but I've never heard of this happening before. I'm glad you were knowledgeable enough to know what to do. I've removed the line from my list of suggestions. You can check System Tools > System Settings > Software ...

Re: bightness issue on new lenovo - intel graphics

So you have tried all or most of the following changes, and then ran "sudo update-grub" in the Terminal, and then rebooted? These changes are through ACPI and don't work with some Lenovo models. Change the line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" into GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash ...

PiMinto, It appears that commands put in /etc/rc.local are not being executed now, like they were in the past.

Re: [SOLVED] Brightness on ASUS g73sw GF106

Everything works upon restart. it starts up as minimum value (i think?) and i can use hardware keys to change it. Actually I wanted to know if your laptop restarts with the exact same value that you had set it, at the last time of operation. Having to use the FN keys every restart is a minor inconv...

Re: How to stop automatic screen dimming when unplugging lap

You can also try adding the line echo 16081065 | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness to the "/etc/rc.local" file, to have this setting at system startup. In the Terminal type “gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local” and add this line just above the line “exit 0”. Save the file, reboot and t...

Re: [SOLVED] Brightness on ASUS g73sw GF106

That's great jx122 but one final question. Does the change you make to the brightness setting remain after restarting your system or do you have to redo it.

First try making this change since it helped another Acer laptop user I helped recently. I'm assuming you're using Mint Cinnamon or Mate. Open the file manager and go to /etc/default and right click on the file named grub. Select "Open as Root" (or "Open as administrator" in Mate). Then open the fil...

Re: [Help] Brightness on ASUS g73sw

What do you mean by crashes. Has this been happening ever since installing the Nvidia driver. I assume that the brightness problem still persists after uninstalling the Nvidia driver. You might want to retry the suggestions in my first post, in case that driver was causing any conflict. I assume tha...

PiMinto, Try running the command echo X | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness in the Terminal, to see if you can change the brightness. The "X" will be changed to the number you used. If there is no change, then can you post the results of using this command in Terminal: grep . /sys...

Re: [Help] Brightness on ASUS g73sw

After installing the proprietary Nvidia driver, did you run the following command in the Terminal, to start using the driver. sudo nvidia-xconfig If not, then do so. Then reboot. This will also generate a new "xorg.conf" file. Since you are using XFCE, then type this command in the Terminal to open ...

There seems to be no universal solution to this laptop problem. Some people have solved the problem by simply editing the grub file in /etc/default and changing the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to one of the following lines, and then running the command "sudo update-grub" in the Te...

Re: [Help] Brightness on ASUS g73sw

Are you saying that after you changed the line in your grub file, that you can use your function keys to change the brightness to only one setting, and that is minimum? You can try replacing the line with one of the following. Remember you need to run in the Terminal "sudo update-grub" after each ch...
