Hello,

 

 

the question today: how to set the brightness on a Lenovo Notebook ?!

I have installed MX 18 on my laptop and am quite impressed with it. 

 

I usually set the Display Brightness to 100% as it is more convenient for me. What I found is after I restart MX 18, the brightness is so bad and i want to have it back to 100% and 

the question is: how to set to 100% manually.

 

the Notebook - here the technical data: 

 

 


Lenovo IdeaPad G780 2182-17.3" Notebook 
Intel HD-Grafik 4000 (integriert)
NVIDIA GeForce GT630 2GB.
Core I3 Mobile 2.2 GHz, 43,9-cm-Display

note: i do not know if i have xbacklight active on the notebook  - see below: 

root@mx:/home/martin# xbacklight -set 70
No outputs have backlight property
root@mx:/home/martin# adb shell command
bash: adb: Kommando nicht gefunden.
root@mx:/home/martin# adb shell command
bash: adb: Kommando nicht gefunden.
root@mx:/home/martin# lsb_release
No LSB modules are available.
root@mx:/home/martin# grep  GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR /etc/default/grub
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -s -d 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
root@mx:/home/martin#



well what to do - how to achieve!? 
love to hear from you

I had this same problem with my Lenovo. Even though the bar is at 100%, it is still dark.

 

What i had to do is scroll the bar down to 50% and then go back up, and it will brighten.

 

Why this doesn't happen on boot, no idea.
