brightness of screen
« on: November 30, 2009, 05:15:56 am »

I just installed 6.0 classic KDE on my Presario f700 and for the life of me I cant find the place where to brighten the screen.  I though it was in the power options but its not there.  Its acting as if  its on battery instead of being plugged in.  I can adjust the brightness through the nvidia controls but it makes it look worse.

I'm not aware of any GUI app for this purpose in KDE-Classic. All my laptops have had built in keys to adjust screen brightness, usually in conjunction with the "Fn" key.

There is a command line utility "xbacklight" which may work for you.

Ok. I just remember having the same problem when I installed 6.0 standard.  So I'm guessing it was with xfce4 I was able to do it then. Ill try what you said and i will let everyone know.  Thanks.

The fn key worked, never knew about that.  Thanks.  I did it kind of trial and error by holding down the fn key then going through the f keys but I found it.
