Just wondering if you have a fix. My Laptop Screen Brightness goes to 0 when booting into LMDE and I have to manually turn it up.
I have searched here and there and found a quick fix, to add this line into rc.local:
Code: Select all
cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/max_brightness > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
But it doesn't work all of the time and it works... well, only when rc.local runs, after all the scripts, so no boot messages for me.
I have also tried to give the "nomodeset" (without the quotes) parameter for my linux kernel on boot which worked on another distro, and it kinda solved, if it were not for the fact that X wouldn't start anymore.
Ah, my hardware details:
Video: Intel® HD Graphics 4000 from Core i3-3110M.
(By the way, where did the "hwinfo" command go? Can't find it anywhere. Is it on another package or should I download the .deb from somewhere and install manually? Sorry, old Linux Mint LTS user, newcomer to LMDE...)
