  2. [SOLVED] Re: How do I adjust the screen brightness in Xfce?

  8. [SOLVED] Re: How do I adjust the screen brightness in Xfce?

    Hi Toz,

    I used "brightness down" before using the "up" command. I even set the backlight to 50% and the "up" command still doesn't work.

    As for the shortcuts, I discovered that the "Fn" key is...
