When I try to edit the /etc/default/grub file and run "update-grub", I get this:
I can't find anyone else who had this problem. Any ideas?Code:/etc/default/grub: 9: nomodeset acpi_backlight=vendor: not found
Compare it with yours and post the resultsCode:(...) GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT="10" GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset acpi_backlight=vendor" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" (...)
YESSSS!!! It works! Although for some reason, the Ubuntu "loading" icon that appears when I first turn my computer on is now stretched. I think I can put up with that though. Thanks!

On KDE I have to use the script from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireTimeline/Fixes
The worst part is it needs root access, otherwise mapping it to the keys would be perfect...
I think I tried the script before, but failed to get it to work. When I have time, I'll give it another go. Not very good with scripts, me, The only scripts I've done are simple bash scripts so far, and this looks more complex than that.
I'll work it out.
It's my grub:
I can't change blacklight brightnessGRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset acpi_backlight=vendor"
