    Samsung Netbook Backlight issue on 3.2.0-34 update

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1086921

    Just updated Xubuntu 12.04 lts tonight and lost control of the my Samsung N150 plus netbook backlight/brightness control. It was working perfectly but the new 3.2.0-34 kernel seems to be the problem. Anyone else with this issue? Hope it gets resolved soon.

    Otherwise couldn't be happier with Xubuntu. It's a great distro.

    I had a similar problem on a Acer notebook and was able to solve it by adding

    acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor

    to the grub kernel line.

    Thank you so much 2F4U! That kernel line got the backlight control working again.
