    Laptop Backlight Issues

    Hello, I've dual booted Ubuntu on my laptop starting with Maverick. Since Natty came out, I've had the backlight problem solved with
    sudo setpci -s 02:00.0 F4.B=00
    and then putting the line (minus 'sudo') into /etc/rc.local. Now, having done a fresh install from CD image of UbuntuStudio 12.04, this code works from a terminal, but not in /etc/rc.local.

    Thanks so much for help on this as well as the answers I've found in the past.

    I have no idea how or why, just ran Update Manager, rebooted and it works now !?! Must have been a fix in there somewhere.
