hi there!
most of the things work very nice with kubuntu 8.10 kde4 version, except there is this weird bug i would really need help with>>

every time i press a key, any key, brightness of the screen changes for one step up. when it gets to the top, it starts again from the lowest level of brightness.

please help me with this because it is extremely annoying and painful for eyes.

xrandr --output LVDS --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL legacy

Seems to work around the problem.

the recent updates stoped the painful behavior, now buttons simply don't work.
still, it is better then before.
thanks anyway!

hi there,

I got the same problem with the same laptop and kubuntu version... do you remember which specific update did the job?
