Thanks for the tips, but unfortunately none worked for me. I tried
- with no obvious success:
- the following has no effect:
xbacklight -set 20
- and neither does this help:
root at liv-inspiron:/home/geek# lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
[AMD/ATI] Venus PRO [Radeon HD 8850M] (rev ff)
root at liv-inspiron:/home/geek# setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=20
root at liv-inspiron:/home/geek# setpci -s 03:00.0 F4.B=20
Any ideas on what else could be wrong? Thanks,
