View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to turn off auto-adjust for screen brightness with Jaunty/MBP5-2?

July 31st, 2009, 04:02 AM
I have just installed Jaunty on my new MBP5-2 17" laptop, and configured it using this wiki (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro5-1_5-2/Jaunty), and Jaunty seems for the most part to be working really well. One very important problem though, is that the screen brightness auto-adjusts and makes itself very dim. I set it to the brightest setting using the manual adjustment (F2 button), and 5-10 seconds later it makes itself dim again. How do I turn off the auto-adjust for the screen brightness?
