There is a display bug that I've been trying to find information on for a while now involving the "eMachines E525 Notebook computer" and it's "backlight", when using Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, and Kubuntu 11.04-11.10. Every time my computer gos to sleep the backlight gets shut off.
All I could find online was that I had to switch to the root of the system and edit the
/etc/rc.local file, adding
setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=00 before the
exit 0 at the end of the file. I did, and when I restart the computer I can see that the backlight is on, however when the computer gos to sleep or the lid gets closed, the backlight goes off and I have to open "Terminal" and type in
sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=00.
I guess my real question is, is there a line of code I could enter into the grub menu or the
/etc/rc.local file to make the backlight stay on? If anybody has any possible fixes for this bug, and would like to share the information with me, it would be highly appreciated.
