    screen brightness

    I have Toshiba satellite laptop with dual boot windows/ubuntu.

    On ubuntu I cannot adjust the screen brightness, in settings there seems to be no option to change it, it's always on maximum, pretty annoying.

    Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Have you tried adding custom shortcuts?

    System Settings > Hardware > Keyboard > Shortcuts

    From there you can configure Custom Shortcuts

    But what kind of shortcut am I adding? I think something is wrong with the brightness in general, apparently no driver, because in color management tab I can't see any bar to adjust brightness or color.
