Brightness bug with dual display mode

with 4 comments

So I moved to Lucid. It was a pain to make fglrx work after upgrade. It somehow messed up with nvidia drivers and while Xorg was loading fglrx it was loading glx and dri extensions fron nvidia package. I fixed symlinks and installed fglrx 10.7.
Brighness control works ok while I’m on laptop without external display. But when I’m in dual display mode brightness control works only from power managmer. While using fn keys brightness popup doesn’t move.
Well, it’s time to fix a new bug.

Brightness solution for Lucid from Vanio

with one comment

As previous solution was not universal as I thought, many people confirm that solution from Vanio works for them. Try it.

While I’m finally moving to 10.04 I will test both solutions later.

Brightness fix for Lucid from Joe L

with 10 comments

As I have not moved to Lucid yet, not much played with brightness.

Then thanks to Joe L, I guess he found a universal brightness fix for Ati and radeon/hd drivers in Lucid. Read it, try it and report back how it works 🙂
