    Brightness in Asus EeePc 1015CX

    Can anyone tell how to reduce the brightness in Asus EeePc 1015CX in Ubuntu 11.04. Note that function keys for brightness are not working but for sound are working. Brightness function keys work in ubuntu 9.04 live cd.

    On my asus r052c I have to type

    sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 f4.b=80

    where 80 is the brightness level.
    Does that work?

    EDIT:
    Now you no longer need Gambas. Just Download the rapidshare link and extract all files in folder called "Final" to a new folder named ".bright" in home. Then add a startup refrence to the file called "start". You may need to fix permissions for the file (Right click, click on Permissions and allow the file to be run as executable)
    The startup command must run as follows:
    ./.bright/start
    If you need password to use any sudo command (if you are not root by default), then run "sudo visudo" in terminal and add the bold line at the position indicated.
    Code:
    %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
    %YOURGROUP ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/setpci
    Replace YOURGROUP by your group name.
    Now you can adjust brightness by running "./.bright/adjust" in terminal or by running the "adjust" file.

    Tested to be working on Xubuntu 13.04 on Asus EEE Pc 1015 CX

    OLDER:
    Okay I have finally figured it all out
    This is the total solution for any Asus Eee Pc 1015 CX for Brightness Problems.
    Download the attachment and install Gambas Runtime (Preferably 2.21)
    To install Gambas, either search for it in Ubuntu Software Center or Synaptic Package Manager and install it from there (Easier)
    If Software Center or Synaptic does not list it, go to http://gambas.sourceforge.net/

    If you need password to use any sudo command (if you are not root by default), then run "sudo visudo" in terminal and add the bold line at the position indicated.
    Code:
    %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
    %YOURGROUP ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/setpci
    Replace YOURGROUP by your group name. After that, keep the attached .gambas file in your home folder somewhere and add a refrence in startup to it with the command as the full path to the file.
    For Example, if my username is uuser and I have kept my attachment in my home folder then the command must be:
    Code:
    /home/uuser/BrightnessApplet.gambas
    After this, every time you start up, the icon will show up in the top panel. Click the icon and you can slide to adjust brightness and it will remain that much at every boot.
    This works definitely with Ubuntu 11.04
    Thanks to LonelyStar for the command
