    Exclamation Help test brightness changing by hotkeys on laptops

    Hallo, I have Thinkpad T500 and my brightness is changed by twice steps (setting by hotkey)

    Please, I need your help, because
    https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=579224
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/gnome-power/+bug/257827

    You need working FN keys for brightness (if you have problem with them, please describe it)

    So, if you have laptop with running Ubuntu and GNOME, you can provide me output of these commands and some additional information (please, no SPAM, if you have problem with one of steps, please, ask me, I try help):

    At first, run script in attachment (who is not registred, please, sent output to pavol@klacansky.com and I will post it, skript is here http://disk.jabbim.cz/pk@jabbim.sk/brightness.sh) by command
    Code:
    bash brightness.sh

    Count (gpm running): count of steps (from min. to max.), when you use hotkeys; gnome-power-manager running

    Count (gpm killed): count of steps (from min. to max.), when you use hotkeys; gnome-power-manager killed by command
    Code:
    killall gnome-power-manager
    and then you can start it by press ALT+F2 and run "gnome-power-manager"


    Example output:

    System:
    OS: Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
    Kernel: 2.6.32-24-generic

    Notebook:
    LENOVO
    208253G
    ThinkPad T500
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

    Brightness:
    ACPI: acpi_video0
    Max: 15
    Count (gpm running): 8
    Count (gpm killed): 15

    Thanks for making Ubuntu better

    I had only problem with OSD indicator during counting of brightness steps - sometimes the indicator doesn't show each step, but skips one step.
