How to adjust light settings?

Post by pointyblue » Wed Dec 10, 2008 10:35 am


Im new to this incredibly cool looking distro and have just installed in on a Packard Bell EasyNote laptop. Everything seems to work as it should but I need to adjust the light of the screen as the default installation is way too dark - I can't use it in normal daylight. How do I adjust the intensity of the light?

(I don't have this problem in Ubuntu or XP on the same machine...)

If your PC supports it, you can right click on the panel>choose "Add to panel">Brightness Applet.
