Re: Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11 (AO1-131-C22E) + LinuxMint

After a lot of struggling with the brightness issue, I have finally found a hassle-free solution on Pjotr's wonderful Easy Linux tips Project website (see step 6.3 in the right column). Automating xbacklight at startup (I set brightness to 25) the Cloudbook 11 screen is not blinding bright anymore :D

Re: Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 (AO1-431-C7EJ) + LinuxMint

We are, now, trying to fix a problem on a different machine than the one concerned (AO1-431-xxxx, which has NO /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/ directory. May be due to Live Compatibility Mode usage) in this thread. Since I created a dedicated thread for the AO1-131-xxxx machine, we better mov...

Re: Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 (AO1-431-C7EJ) + LinuxMint

Well, you can also access the brightness adjustment bar from the battery level icon in the task-bar. (works only on the AO1-131-xxxx, AO1-431-xxxx does Not have anything there) Yeah, that's more straightforward :D thanks. Have you tried right click on panel --> add applet --> power management on AO...

Re: Hardware and Privacy

Most pieces of hardware being produced nowadays have hidden features that sould be meant for maintenance but can (and some times actually are) exploited for malicious/surveillance/metering purposes by a number of parties.
In short: live offline or stand the pain :mrgreen:

Re: Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 (AO1-431-C7EJ) + LinuxMint

Something in my mind right now: What about setting up automatically the brightness level, your way, once user(s) logged in ? I remember that Ubuntu offered the possibility to run things just after log in. (called this "Auto-Start" (spelling may be without the dash, I forgot this detail)) ...

Re: Acer One Cloudbook 14 (AO1-431-C7EJ) + LinuxMint 17.3

I'm curious to know how you came to this "shim64.efi" file existence and what to do with. I came to that with good old "toying around" :D I don't now much about this relatively new UEFI thing (I'm more accustomed to the classic BIOS), so I took a tour of it and saw that you can ...

Re: How to create a link to a certain file in Cinnamon panel

Hi guys, thanks for your replies. Radish is right: what I need is a set of launchers onto my panel so that I can open and start working on certain files in no time. I have managed to do so this way (working for Libre Office files): 1) right click on a launcher that is already present in the panel 2)...

How to create a link to a certain file in Cinnamon panel?

Hi. I'm using Mint Cinnamon 17.3 and it'd be extremely helpful to me if I could place shortcuts in the panel so that when I click them, the related files open directly inside the proper application and I don't have to browse the system and find them every time. I mainly need shortcuts for Libre Offi...

Re: Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14 (AO1-431-C7EJ) + LinuxMint

Hi HP Sparks. Happy to hear you found the right place for 17.3 :wink: The brightness issue is quite annoying, because the Cloudbook's screen is insanely bright and you need to dim it immediately or... put on sunglasses before booting. In /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/ there are 3 files relate...
