Linux backlight on Intel laptops

0:23:00 , 0 Comments


Error 1:
When Fn keys are pressed, the OSD show bright percentage, but  backlight bright doesn't change.

Error 2:
When Fn keys are pressed, the OSD do not appear.

Solutions:
If OSD appears while keys are pressed, just add this line to the bootloader

acpi_osi=
If not, didn't show OSD and backlight didn't change too,  please add the below text to  /usr/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Card0"
    Driver      "intel"
    Option      "Backlight"  "intel_backlight"
EndSection
The first line checks if Intel Driver is properly installed in our system, the second one checks if intel's backlight as we can see in the third line:

lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'
ls /sys/class/backlight/
acpi_video0  intel_backlight
