Screen brightness with NVIDIA card:
Laptops with this graphic card are unable to change the brightness of the LCD screen, to be able to turn down from the desktop controls (fn keys do not work), you have to follow these steps:
@ sudo nvidia-xconfig [Generates a X configuration file in ”/etc/X11/xorg.conf”]
@ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf [Edit the file, add “Option “RegistryDwords” “EnableBrightnessControl=1”” (remove 1st and last quotes)between “Section “Screen”” and “EndSection”]
@ sudo reboot [Restart]
No problems under Ubuntu 12.04LTS, the video problems are resolved with the newest drivers in “Additional drivers”.
Almost everything runs out of the box, you have only to correct the brightness problem in some models. In addition, the fn keys does not execute any action with some shortcuts (brightness for example).
