Quick brightness guide for Jaunty

with 62 comments

This little guide is faster an easier version of previous brightness how to. Since Jaunty already have sony-laptop patch included, we need to patch our DSDT bios table only and override default one with patched, while kernel is loading. I saw many people have problems with DSDT compiling, so I removed dsdt-error.patch patches from pack, and changed it with another line in terminal.

I have made a script which will make all what needed, you just need to select right patch for your model. Download new patches pack. Unpack it, then pop up your terminal and go into that directory, where you’ve unpacked it. There is 3 patches included dsdt-ati-fix-fw1x.patch, dsdt-ati-fix-fw2x.patch, dsdt-ati-fix-fw3x.patch. If you have FW3x(x) model, then use dsdt-ati-fix-fw3x.patch and so on for FW1x(x)/FW2x(x). Ok, you’ve made your choice, now just type this in terminal:

Ok, I have changed script and make him choose the right patch for you, just type this in terminal then:

sudo ./dsdt-patch

That’s all :)

Here is a source code of that script, for those who interested:

  1. Hi,

    Really great idea :)! I noticed that sony released a new model of vaio FW (the FW 41xx / 45x for Europe), so I wondered if your patch works/will work on theses models. Maybe there is just couple of words to add in dsdt-ati-fix-fw3x.patch. And, will your DSDT patches be available in Ubuntu fress installation (patching on every new kernel will be a bit annoying) ?

    Thanks.

    PS: sorry for crap english, it is not my native language.

    • For Jaunty and above we do not need to patch kernel, just one time DSDT patching, that’s all. Fresh install, patch DSDT, got brightness, update kernel and brightness will be still working :)
      As for new models, if someone can give me their DSDT.aml (acpidump -b -t DSDT -o DSDT.aml) for FW4 models, I’ll take a look and add new patch in the pack.

  2. I ran the above script. Everything works correctly, but the patch is not applied. The last line of output from your script is:

    “Compilationg successfull, updating initramfs”

    I manually checked if /etc/initramfs-tools/DSDT.aml was made and it was not made. Patch number 3 was the one it selected. I am using Jaunty 64-bit. Any ideas?

  7. Sorry that this is the entirely wrong place to put this, I just couln’t find anywhere else to put it.

    I am a college student looking at buying at Vaio FW. The ATI Graphics card turned me off of it for a while because I’d heard about some commpatibility issues, but it seems like exactly what I’m looking for. I want to run Ubuntu, and was just wondering how realistic and stable that would be for someone with a small amount of Linux experiance.

    • You better try it yourself, people are all different. As for Ati, well, Nvidia is much friendlier now for linux.
      And you can read and ask on http://ubuntuforums.org/ there are much more people :)

    June 10, 2009 at 11:39

    • Hi egaistek,

      I have a new VAIO VGN-FW35G with an ATI Mobility HD 3470 Radeon graphics card.
      I am new in Ubuntu and despite you clearly said at the top of the page:…”Unpack it, then pop up your terminal and go into that directory, where you’ve unpacked it.”….still does not work.
      Should I use your Version 0.2 of your patch? How am I supposed to go into that directory that I am unpacked?
      I also run the patch directly from it opening it in Terminal and then clicked OK, nothing happened.I also tried sudo but I ignore which part of the script I need to copy & paste in Terminal.
      Any help please? Thank you.

    • That means package manager can not found needed packages. I don’t know why, maybe you’ll try sudo apt-get install iasl acpidump in terminal then post output.
      Do not forget to enable Main and Universe repositories in System->Administration->Software Sources.

  13. I’ve fixed it – I noticed in the last line it mentions ATI – So I went to System – administration and then hardware drivers – where my ATI driver was inactive and then I activated it. Ran the script again and now its working :D

    Thank you for the help and more importantly the script. Confirmed on FW140D

  14. the patching went alright with my fw31zj, but three questions:

    1: when putting the brightness down, the screen starts to make a buzzing noise from the lower right corner of the screen. What can I do about that?

    2: The screen looks very saturated to me (orange of the firefox logo for example is really, really orange)

    3: I can’t enable desktop effects… Is that because I have no proprietary driver installed? If yes, what package should I install, since there is nothing in the System->Administration->hardware program listed…

    Marnix

    June 12, 2009 at 02:51

    • 1. Noise comes from the backlight lamp. Nothing to do with it. It’s major issue with almost every lcd monitor.
      2. Change saturation in Ati Catalyst Control Center if you installed fglrx driver.
      3. Can’t help, I just don’t using Compiz because of max/minimization lag. Maybe someone will help :) You can download fglrx driver for linux from Ati/AMD site.

      egaistek

      June 12, 2009 at 03:27

      • thanks a lot :)
        after a while I don’t hear the noise anymore, so no problems with that :) Saturation is solved now, too!

        I do have a compiz problem, I get a white screen and have to switch to metacity to get my screen back…

  15. Hi all,

    Just bought my VGN-FW35G the other day, and without thinking much about it, installed jaunty over vista.
    Didn’t even boot it once. A slight mistake now that I realize (i think) that the manuals only came as soft copies on the vista partition, and can’t be extracted from the recovery partition.

    Anyone got those support manuals as .pdf and can send it to me?
    winsute@yahoo.com.au
    would be very thankful!

  17. Finally successful!!!
    The installation went wrong, grub wouldn’t launch after a reboot (tried several times). So, I copied the previous grub folder from a LiveCD to my old /boot/grub folder (GoS 3 liveCD) and it now works flawlessly. I’m using a VGN-FW31M.
    Actually I don’t know why changes were made to GRUB but nevermind.

    Thanks for the work greatly appreciated!!!!

    and another thing.. if my CD drive isnt working.. what should i do? it is not working in ubuntu 9.04 x64

    but it works when im on vista

    mido

    July 6, 2009 at 03:30

    • What do you mean by not working cd drive? Try boot from live cd, if it loads, then it work.
      I’m not on Firefox 3.5 now, maybe I’ll try it a bit later.

      egaistek

      July 6, 2009 at 03:32

    • Have you tried booting the computer with a CD-ROM in the drive?

      This is the same problem I have, if there is a CD in the drive then the drive works in Ubuntu, otherwise it does not.

      Wait until the Ubuntu release of Firefox 3.5 reaches Synaptic then install via the ‘update manager’.

  23. Hi egaistek,

    Since the acpi-dsdt-initrd patch is not available for kernel 2.6.30+, i’ve tried compiling the fixed dsdt directly into the kernel.

    For this i used the .hex file, appended these lines to the kernel config:

    CONFIG_STANDALONE=n
    CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT=y
    CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_FILE=”DSDT.hex”

    And recompiled. After reboot, the custom dsdt is loaded and the /proc/acpi/video/VGA entries are created. However, echoing to brightness does not work, it gives back “write error: invalid argument”. I also don’t see a /sys/class/backlight being created, which i believe is needed.

    Do you have any idea or advice how to solve this? I’m on a FW31ZJ machine.

    Tia :)
    -lite

    lite

    July 19, 2009 at 18:04

    • P.s., the .hex i use is from the patched dsdt that works fine in initrd (on 2.6.29)

  27. Hi, egaistek!

    Thank you for the brightness patch. I’ve got a Sony Vaio VGN-FW4 laptop with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 graphic chip. The LCD is much to bright and can neither be adjusted using the brightness applet (gnome-power-manager) nor using the F5/F6 functions keys :(

    Sadly I have to say that I’m NOT using Ubuntu Jaunty BUT Sabayon 4.2 32-Bit (based on Gentoo) with 2.6.29-sabayon #1 kernel, Gnome 2.26.2, fglrx driver and Compiz.

    At the moment, I helped myself adjusting the LCD brightness using the ATI Catalyst Control Center. Now, the brightness is OK but the LCD still stresses the laptop accu. To make things worse, when I try to use the suspend or hibernate function, it is not able to “wake up” again, but black screen only – so, running the laptop without using these functions is also stressing the accumulator. That’s why I would really like to get the brightness control and suspend/hibernate functions working here with my fancy Sabayon.

    When I just tried your patch, it couldn’t find acpidump and exited at that point. I was unable to find the acpidump package in my portage tree or anywhere else. Maybe it isn’t available for Gentoo/Sabayon? I took a look into your script dsdt-patch and found out, that the script would probably also stop when trying to launch apt-get or dpkg-reconfigure. Concerning the “apt-get install …” lines I think these could be replaced by “equo install …” but I don’t know how to get acpidump for Gentoo or what to call instead of dpkg-reconfigure.

    Maybe porting your script and patches to Gentoo/Sabayon is even more complicated?

    Can you support me in any way or do you have an idea how to get the brightness control (or even the suspend/hibernate problem) fixed here? If you need further information or logfiles, please let me know.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    • Sure you can use it on Gentoo with modifications. You can try to compile/install acpidump by hands, check this url http://gentoo-portage.com/sys-power/pmtools
      And you can change dpkg-reconfigure to update-initramfs -k linux-image-`uname -r` I’m not sure about this -k argument, if it does not work you can always use -k all

      August 16, 2009 at 01:24

  28. […] LCD Helligkeit lässt sich nicht einstellen (es gibt bisher nur einen Ubuntu Kernel-Patch oder das Abwarten auf einen neuen Kernel, etc. 2.6.30 oder […]

  29. Thank you very much for your advise reagarding the Gentoo modification of this script, egaistek!

    I was able to “emerge sys-power/pmtools” and therefore I should have “acpidump” now.

    But I couldn’t find a program called “update-initramfs”. Maybe this initramfs thing is somehow connected to genkernel? Sorry, but I never configured a Sabayon Kernel myself and a quick search on initramfs related topics on the internet gave me the impression that initramfs is very complicated and should be avoided to use manually, if possible. Maybe I’ve to contact some people in the Sabayon forum and ask them ’bout that.

    Again, thank You very much.

  34. Is there a way to apply these patches to a custom Karmic kernel (2.6.31.6). Got suspend working with the custom kernel, but now brightness doesn’t work, and when I try and apply this patch, after “sudo ./dsdt-patch”, it just says “sudo: ./dsdt-patch: command not found”. Is there any way you can post a link to the Karmic patch files or tell me how to update this for 9.10? Thanks!
