Title: <Abandoned> brightness on dell inspiron n5110 laptop
Post by: DAMIEN1307 on November 21, 2017, 06:00:50 pm
ok hi guys once again...i understand server went down so im reposting this...is there a way for peppermint to retain my brightness setting for this laptop...i presently have been setting it with slider control found on right click on battery meter...havent been able to find a way to permently set this...every time i start the computer i always need to reset it to my preference...im quite light sensitive so hate the shock of a bright screen even though i use a dark background already...yea i know, i live in the desert with 360 days of sunlight per year and im light sensitive...you should see the blackout drapes on my windows...lol...my neighbors think im a vampire...thanks for any info on how to do this...DAMIEN

new edit...also notice that while in session that when battery has fully charged, it brings screen back to 100% brightness again and have to re-captiulate again...DAMIEN

hey there pcnetspec...dont forget to look at my re-post...you had asked a question before the website went down about how i was setting brightness level to begin with and i have included this answer on the re-post after the website became available again and realised the original postings before a certain time had been lost...thanx...DAMIEN

My apologies I missed this

check out this tutorial > https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,3668.msg36961.html#msg36961 (https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,3668.msg36961.html#msg36961)

you may be able to put the relevant line in a small script and have it run 10 secs after startup to set the screen brightness.  Look at help for xrandr and I am sure you can set the hue too - ie take out harsh blue light

Regards Zeb...

Sorry...
You could check this parallel thread, https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php?topic=6229.0
See, if it could be something similar

EDIT: Or maybe not... Just checked your model and it doesn't seem to have any NVIDIA chips... unless...
