    Any Known Bug Fixes for Backlight?


    Hi!


    Just noticed now about this new section. Congratulations LF!

    I have always been impressed with Mint but in as much as I wanted to upgrade to 9 (still in Gloria), I can't since my machine's hotkeys does not allow me to dim backlight of laptop from Mint 8 and above. If I'm not mistaken, it is a known bug issue in kernels 2.6.3x.x.x and above.

    May I please ask anybody who might be aware of any current fixes for this bug?

    Thanks and again, kudos LF!

    Hey nujini,

    I'm using Mint 9 from around 6 months now, and I guess I've posted this issue somewhere. but I don't think it's a kernel issue because I jumped to Mint after Fedora12 and as far as I remember adjusting backlight by hot keys used to work perfect on Fedora using kernel 2.6.32.x.x.
    I have never used Ubuntu, so may be in Mint it is inherited from there itself, may be any Ubuntu user can confirm?
