I don't remember whether it was in this list or the Kubuntu one where 
someone was asking if there was a way to control the brightness of an 
Apple LCD monitor.

I was just having a look at Ubuntu 10.10 Alpha1 and noticed in UBUNTU 
TWEAK (I installed it myself) that there is, under System>Advanced Power 
Management Settings, a slider which controls the brightness of an LCD 
monitor when AC power is being used. What I don't know (I didn't try it) 
if it works only on laptops or also on desktop monitors - up to whoever 
to find out.


Fact is that which enough people believe. Truth is determined by how fervently they believe it.
