View Full Version : [ubuntu] Acer Aspire 5310 + "variable" brightness

July 2nd, 2008, 10:36 AM
Hi folks!

I tried Kiwi 8.04 (an Ubuntu based distro - I'm hungarian and this distro supports better my languages - as I've read on the homepage...)

Everything works fine (wlan, sound, SD card reader, volume control, etc..) except the brightness. With Fn+left/right arrows I can adjust brightness, but every time I start a program it falls down, and my screen goes dark. Then I have to press Fn+right arrow until the brightness is 100% again, and stays on 100% until I start another program. (This happens with Ubuntu, too!)

How can I fix this? It is so frustrating, because I start programs very often. I don't use the battery, and no pipe before 'Screen goes dark in idle' (sorry I don't know it in english, it is under the energy management). I'd like to set brightness fix 100% from turning on my laptop to turning off.

Could you help me?
