http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi everyone. I am a new convert to Linux. Just set up an Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop pc (no dual boot, bye bye windows). This going pretty smoothly so far. One or two problems with scanner etc but nothing major. However I also want to put Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop as a dual boot with windows 7. I have initially tried this booting from live cd to see if everything works before going ahead with install. This has identified a problem in that the screen brightness control wont work and the screen constantly scans back and forth along the various levels of brightness from dim to bright and back.
