  1. [xubuntu] Re: Brightness does not change: always on maximum.

    Toz -
    Thank you! The 20nvidia.conf file that you suggested has done the trick: I now have backlight brightness control! For my sake, I'd mark this as 'solved', but since Josh45 still looks as if...
  2. [xubuntu] Re: Brightness does not change: always on maximum.

    Hmm... I don't *have* an xorg.conf, and haven't had one in a couple years now. I don't know how kubuntu has been storing the video configuration, but it hasn't been using xorg.conf!

    Hmmm.... I...
  3. [xubuntu] Re: Brightness does not change: always on maximum.

    Toz - thanks for your continued help! Sadly, no joy - still no control of the backlight.

    $ cat /proc/cmdline

    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic...
  4. [xubuntu] Re: Brightness does not change: always on maximum.

    Varun - Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, I can't install xbacklight without uninstalling the drivers that I have currently installed!

    Toz - Here's what I have in response to your...

    Varun -


    cfigura@nightfall:~$ ls -l /sys/class/backlight

  6. [xubuntu] Re: Brightness does not change: always on maximum.

    Varun - Thanks for the pointer. I tried your recommendation. The on-screen HUD changed value (same as using the function keys) but it did not actually change the screen brightness.
  7. [xubuntu] Re: Brightness does not change: always on maximum.

    I have the same problem after updating to kubuntu 14.04 and installing the nvidia drivers. When I run varun's code, I get:


    /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0
    15

    Does this mean 15...
  8. [kubuntu] Re: fonts too big after installing nvidia driver

    I'm curious about this, too - I just updated to 14.04 and installed the NVIDIA drivers and had the same problem. I found the 'force 96dpi' setting on my own, and it looks *mostly* normal. But the...

    [kubuntu] Re: Bus error in knotify and vlc

    And an update - it's NOT knotify. It's that my new mail notification included playing a wav file.

    I've done testing now - wav files are the root cause of the knotify bus error. So what I've got...

    [kubuntu] Bus error in knotify and vlc

    What do the multimedia players and knotify have in common? Both cause bus errors on my machine as of about a week and a half ago.

    Specifically, when I try to use vlc to display a movie (flv, mpg,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Kstars

    I've got the same problem with kstars - no telescope models are shown in the telescope wizard. I'm running 1.6.0 under lucid.
  12. [kubuntu] Re: Kontact won't start: Akonadi problem on Lucid

    I've been having problems with akonadi and kontact as well, and they sound like the same ones. When I did a clean install of 10.04, I've tried to work with it, migrate address books, the rest. ...

    [all variants] Webcam disappeared!

    So I've got a new (two-week old) Dell E6400 running Karmic, and it's been great. The webcam was working just dandy - I was using Skype and Cheese (although the video record under Cheese would cause...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Dell e6400 wandering touchpad - workaround

    There's been a nice discussion over on launchpad regarding this issue:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/296610

    There's a set of kernel patches (that patch the psmouse.ko...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Dell e6400 wandering touchpad - workaround

    Generally, I see a lot of screwey jumping back to the beginning of the page when I try to drag a scroll bar down, or the pointer keeps jumping to right of screen when I try to drag. I don't think...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Dell e6400 wandering touchpad - workaround

    I just got a Dell E6400, and 'xinput list' indicates that Karmic recognizes both the AlpsPS/2 DualPoint Touchpad AND the DualPoint Stick.

    Most of the time it works well, but there is some skipping...
  17. [kde] Re: plasma python scriptengine stopped working

    Yeah, neither did adept (as I recall) - that's why I've been using synaptic for years now. I prefer KDE to gnome, but they still haven't figured out some obvious (to me, anyway) things that gnome...
  18. [kde] Re: plasma python scriptengine stopped working

    Yep... according to the installation history on synaptic:
    python-kde4 (4:4.3.2-0ubuntu1) to 4:4.3.2-0ubuntu2
    python-kde4-dev (4:4.3.2-0ubuntu1) to 4:4.3.2-0ubuntu2

    I'm going to try reverting and...
  19. [kde] Re: plasma python scriptengine stopped working

    It's not just the plasmoidviewer tool. Looks like it happened with last night's/yesterdays new version of the python/kde/plasma packages on Karmic. Mine were fine until I rebooted this morning.

    [kubuntu] Re: GL flicker problem

    Yah, so I've tried that, and the flicker problem, at least, does indeed go away when I disable desktop effects. I haven't been able to test whether the screensaver does the partial-screen deal.
