Hi guys - great job on the site - this is exactly what I need!

I've installed samsung-backlight and samsung-tools, but the backlight controls aren't working yet. Fn+Up and Fn+Down are both making it as far as the OS, because the flash comes up top-right showing that the brightness is increasing and decreasing, but nothing else happens (i.e. the brightness doesn't change).

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10.

nVidia or Intel video?

If nVidia try modifying the /etc/X11/xorg.conf like this:
Code:
Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Default Device"
   Driver      "nvidia"
   Option      "NoLogo" "True"
   Option      "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"
EndSection


it worked for me on a R510 nvidia...

bye!
