    Yes, exactly. But now I have gotten used to five finger middle click

    I'm running a Debian system with the Ubuntu 3.2.0 kernel with almost the same results. As far as the suspend script is concerned I only have the bind/unbind for ehci left. I need either the xhci stuff, not the display part of that script. Would you mind trying? The smaller the script the better the system is imo.

    Also I completely removed the power saving script and instead installed and configured laprop-mode-tools accordingly. I find that approach very much preferable.

    I don't think X11 can cope with this very well.

    The current solution is to always plug the external monitor in AFTER your machine has started.
    Gracias por la respuesta.

    como tu me indicas funciona correctamente.

    Re: Ubunutu and the asus zenbook (UX31)

    Hi and a very big thank you to all who have helped us get our UX31's working better in Linux.

    I have one annoyance though, whenever I restart the brightness is always 100% and I have to reduce it with <fn>-<F5>.

    After restart System Settings shows display brightness at full, even if I set it to minimum.

    Does anyone have an idea how to fix it?

    This is mentioned in this thread and on the wiki page for the Zenbook.

    You can change the brightness to a particular level by putting something like the following in a startup or login type script:

    Code:
    # 50% screen brightness on battery
    echo 5 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:00:02.0/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

    Hi GodzillaMonster,

    Thanks for your help.

    I already have the power saving script from the wiki with that line in it. Saved in /etc/pm/power.d/zenbook-powersave

    Doesn't change my backlight on reboot, whatever value I put after the 'echo' (I've tried all values 1 to 9).

    No it won't.. the suspend script is only executed when starting and leaving suspend mode.

    You will need to put it in a script that is run on startup or when you log in, such as /etc/rc.local

    It's not the suspend script, it's the power optimisation script, in /etc/pm/power.d not /etc/pm/sleep.d, I was under the impression that if it was in /etc/pm/power.d it would run at boot.

    Sorry.. I misread that.

    Whereabouts in the script did you put it?

    Is it possible your power script has an error and therefore is not completing to the line you put the echo on?

    Anyhow, putting it in /etc/rc.local should still work.

    Have you made the script executable? My (executable) script in /etc/pm/power.d/ runs at boot.
