Gateway Laptop Brightness
I've recently updated to Ubuntu 9.10 from 8.10 (via 9.04), and I've noticed one thing. I used to have the brightness working by invoking the "xrandr --output LVDS --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL native" at startup, however, this command does not seem to work anymore, and thus, I have no more control over the brightness of my computer. Is there a fix for this?
The output error message that I get is:
X Error of failed request: BadRROutput (invalid Output parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 149 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 15 (RRGetOutputProperty)
Serial number of failed request: 26
Current serial number in output stream: 26
EDIT: Thought it might be useful to know, that this problem doesn't appear on older kernels that I have listed in my GRUB (2.6.28-16 and 2.6.27-15), but only on 2.6.31-14.

Re: Gateway Laptop Brightness
Hi. I don't have a fix yet, but I get the exact same problem on a Gateway M6829b laptop. This is a regression since Jaunty. I will file a bug report when I get the time, but in the meantime any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks.
