Edouard, have you ever tested this on CentOS 6 or RHEL 6? I've tried applying your solution to my 8770w, with no luck. Thanks for posting your solution!

Edouard Thiel, 2014/05/14 09:51

Drew, have you tried the “HP Mobile Display Assistant” ?
HP gives it as a rpm which should be fine for you.

About my program, perhaps you should try to change
some parameters in: /usr/local/dreamcolor2/

Drew S, 2014/05/16 04:21

I have tried the HP mobile assistant. While it installed and gave me some display utilities, it did not fix the problem.

I will check the params in the set brightness script to see if they have any effect.

I did contact HP. They looked into this issue and into a problem I'm having with the internal smart card reader. They validated that the problem with the brightness exists, even with their driver packages and they basically don't have a solution for it.
