At completely random times my screen starts flickering between dark and bright, the meter comes up in the top hand corner as if i'm changing it myself but i'm not. Any ideas?
Definitely a laptop problem, hopefully not a hardware problem.
When I try to adjust my laptops screen brightness, it goes to some very low brightness and then the screen starts flickering (ie changing between different brightness levels). When my laptop boots, it's at full brightness, and when I adjust that, flickering starts. After that I cannot get it back to any non-very-low brightness.
I started having an issue with my S4 's screen flickering bright and low whenever the battery saver mode is engaged or when screen is dimming for any reason. Anyone have any ideas on what could cause this. I checked for other apps, now I either have to have the auto brightness off or manual switch it when going indoors or when any reason to dim screen. Frustrating.
Hello, forum users!
I have a laptop Samsung 300v5a-s19 with NVIDIA GeForce GT 520MX.
I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 and then Bumblebee 3.0.1.
Now it works well without any lags, but there is one problem: when I try to change the screen brightness (by Fn buttons or in the System Settings (Brightness and lock)), display starts flickering.
I've bought an Asus Eeeee netbook because I heard they are good with Linux. I'm very much a new Linux arrival after a long time with Windows.
I've installed Ubuntu on the machine.
If it boots 'normally' the screen emulates a dark tunnel. If I boot from 'recovery mode', then choose 'resume normal mode' (followed by 'exit recovery mode'), the screen is brightness itself.
Hi, I have my phone on the lowest setting of Settings -> display -> brightness and I also have automatic brightness turned off, and the screen is still too bright and drains battery like crazy. My friend's galaxy s3 is so much dimmer and she can go even lower. Any suggestions? Much appreciated! :)
I am running Ubuntu 13.04 32bit on an Asus UL80JT.
Is there a way to set Ubuntu to remember my screen brightness setting?
I managed to enable the controls so that the screen brightness can be increased and decreased. I like to have the brightness set around 50-60%. However, whenever I turn on my computer the screen brightness is back at 100%.
When I'm on auto bright setting, when I'm in direct sunlight I can't read the screen at all. Not even enough to navigate to the brightness adjustment. I'd like the screen to go full bright when out in the direct sun. Any ideas?
