    Question Macbook5-1 + backlight + nvidia driver

    Hi there,

    I just installed ubuntu (intrepid) on my new Macbook following this guide.
    While most things are working quite good now I cannot adjust the backlight brightness when the proprietary nvidia driver is installed (it works well with the default VESA-driver).

    From the guide I'd think that the backlight should wirk with the nvidia driver as well. Can anyone verify that the adjustment of the backlight on a new Macbook works with the nvidia driver?

    Greetings acron

    Hi ercoppa,

    thanks for your answer. You are right in tty i can adjust the brightness as described. Is there any information why this occurs with the nvidia but not the open-source driver?
    Is that already reported as a bug?

    I think not. Somebody (I am not good with english!) can open a thread here to report the problem (I don't know if there is any other way to comunicate with nvidia's developers).

    But I am not sure of my words.

    EDIT
    If you have any questions or problems, please check the linux discussion forum. If you don't find an answer to your question there, you can send email (in English) to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.
