View Full Version : [ubuntu] Brightnes issue on new install.

July 29th, 2012, 09:49 PM
I am a new user of Ubuntu and have installed 12.04 on my Toshiba Satellite laptop. My problem is that my screen is almost to dim for me to use anything. I have already tried going into settins and brightness and un-checked all the options for dimming screen. I have never used anything like this and need some guidance for putting in command prompts to fix this issue. Any help would be great...:confused:

Hi and welcome to Ubuntu Forums.

Please open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and paste this command

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver idle-activation-enabled false
worked ?
