Does anyone know much about configuring under the hood brightness settings in
I recently upgraded my Dell XPS M1330 laptop to 10.10 & somehow this has mucked
up the brightness modulation. Specifically, I've lost some of the intermediate
brightness settings, so the 10.10 brightness steps are larger. This means I've
lost my normal/comfortable use brightness setting. I've only been using the
keyboard to adjust brightness too.
Various googling hasn't revealed much. The "echo -n ... " to the acpi brightness
file does nothing (using su).
