View Full Version : [ubuntu] Brightness and contrast messed up after upgrade to 10.04

After the upgrade to version 10.04 (from 9.10) brightness and contrast got maxed out, and now watching at the monitor hurts my eyes :S.
Is there an utility similar to nvidia-settings, compatible with radeon 8500 vga?

Same problem here! Any news?

[edit]The solution appears to be universal again.. "sudo gedit /etc/default/grub" and add radeon.modeset=0 after quiet splash. Save the file and run sudo update-grub. Reboot. Worked for me.
