Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)
Ya, see this is why I keep going back and forth on the "Is the backligh a Kernel problem?" I am running a genaric 2.26.25-ARCH kernel. I have said before that it dims on VLC boot but not all the way and only the first time. I would not be suprized if a lot of these settings could be fixed by changing setting in a custom Kernel build.

ALSO, I booted into Ubuntu7.10 live CD and the max bright setting in there is 15 NOT 10. So, this makes sents if the Brightness bar in KDE was reporting max bright at 67%. 8/15 is 67% 8/10 is 80%..... So, this talk about how it should be 10 is wrong it "should be" 15.

Note: If you are using a intel X3100 graficx card and don't want to mess everything up by running Compiz but still want to have the 3D desktop effects when changing desktops youcan use 3ddesktop
sudo apget 3ddesktop
sudo pacman -S 3ddesktop
