Fix The Brightness Control Keys
Reduce or increase the brightness of your screen, using the special keys. Did you find something strange? It goes down or up two steps at a time, with a 1/4 second interval. It's not a big deal but it doesn't look very clean and it lacks some precision. The problem here is that both MATE-power-manager and ACPI's backlight management are acting here. So we just need to deactivate one of them. We will deactivate
acpi_backlightsince MATE-power-manager already does that job and adds an On Screen Display (OSD).
Just add this to your Kernel Boot Parameters:
acpi_backlight=none(no spaces; exact typing!)
You must TEST IT first, then make it permanent. Follow these instructions on how to change your Kernel Boot Parameters:
You will get:
- Precise screen brightness control via keyboard.
- OSD still working.
- Brightness settings "remembered" from last session (after login screen at 100% brightness).
