View Full Version : [ubuntu] brightness issue with 9.10

December 9th, 2009, 10:02 PM
I seem to be having an issue with the brightness of the display on my laptop here (its a dell inspiron 1520). By the time i get to the log in screen after starting the computer the display is rather dark, i can simply make it bright by using the Fn and up arrow keys. However if i log out the log in will be as dim as it was when i first logged on. Ive checked and made sure the "dim display when idle" box in Preferences->Power Managment is unchecked and im at a loss as what to do.

Edit: this is all while running on AC
