Brightness Bug Dell XPS 17 3d Nvidia M555

Postby de5n » Thu Nov 23, 2017 12:48 pm

The brightness of my laptop's screen is not changed at all when using the Fn-Keys. It is shown that brightness level is changed by pressing Fn F-4-f5, but display did not change. I checked if value of brightness is changed in /sys/class/backlight/dell_backlight. And yes, it is changed in files but no display. Also I noticed that after rebooting the system display brightness changes according to what we make before.

dmesg|grep 'ACPI: Video'
[ 1.506893] ACPI: Video Device [PEGP] (multi-head: yes rom: no post: no)

I also changed xorg.conf

I also made some manipulates with GRUB but nothing works for me. Any idea hot to fix?

P.S. I performed every point from ... adjustable
but failed.
