View Full Version : [ubuntu] LCD Panel brightness

I have already added the brightness applet to the panel, but still my LCD (HP DV6611EI) seems a bit dim. Any suggestions?

Check the power manager settings. Right Click on the battery icon and have a look at the screen brightness setting in the power and on battery modes.

Just re-considered (is this a laptop?)

Yes, this is a laptop, a hp dv6611ei to be precise. I dont see any options for panel brightness in the power management panel.

Have you tried adjusting the brightness on the laptop? Usually you can use the "Fn" key with a couple of the function keys that have appropriate blue symbols.
