Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 675295
Brightness unchangeable on Asus G53J
Last modified: 2012-08-16 09:31:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Using nvidia driver, with a GTX460m. This laptop is the not-so-high grade G53J, with the screen : firstname.lastname@example.org''
On a fresh installation of FC14 with KDE, brightness controls works ( both fn keys and power manager appears as working, and everything seems okay in /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/ and /proc/acpi/video/GFX0/LCDD/, the values are okay and change accordingly).
However, in reality, brightness is stuck at approximately 75% of max luminosity, and will not change.
I also added the following section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-system-setup-keyboard.conf :
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"
Before, when trying to increase brightness over approximately 75% resulted in the brightness moving back on forth around this value without being able to exceed it (on "paper", the brightness was also stuck in reality).
I found this bug : https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=646322
However, I cannot load thinkpad_acpi.
su -c 'modprobe thinkpad_acpi'

This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
