    Ubuntu 8.10 and 10.10 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1100

    Can anyone help please I have an Aspire 5100 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 and have been happily running Ubuntu 8.10 until now when support has ended.
    I continued with 8.10 because the graphics have been fine with my system.

    I also have 10.10 installed and apart from the graphics, I would have no problem changing/upgrading.

    The problem is the glare, after a while it is very hard to work on.

    Is there anything I can do that's not to technical to reduce the glare.

    What does the glare on the screen have to do with the version of Ubuntu on the machine?

    The glare/extra bright whites on websites is from the screen when using 10.10.
    I have no problem when I use 8.10.
    I assume from the information I have seen regarding ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 that its something to do with this.
    I have adjusted Contrast/Luminosity/Tried turning off effects but nothing really fixes it and find that I have to keep switching back to 8.10 for comfort.

    Is it just too bright and you can't dim it down?

    How about gddccontrol? It's in the repos.
    Antec900, AMDX6 1090t, nVidia GTS450, PCPower&C 750W Silencer, Corsair H70, OCZ Vertex2, Asus M4A88TD-M/USB3.
    Win7, Ubuntu10.04, Linux Mint.
    And two cats that make me glad I have an air compressor.

    Thanks for that tip - just tried it but got the following message
    “The current monitor is in the database but does not support DDC/CI”
    My PC’s a laptop.

    SOLVED Re: Ubuntu 8.10 and 10.10 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1100

    OK I have solved the brightness/glare by installing Redshift.

    Tried both Redshift and f.lux and Redshift seems to work best for me, so I have moved on to 10.04 - Lucid Lynx.
