Hi I have created two custom keyboard short cuts as my brightness settings have disappeared since installing Nvidia Driver.
These two short cuts are as follows:
name: brightness_up command: xbacklight -inc 10 binding: Monitor Brightness Up Key name: brightness_down command: xbacklight -dec 10 binding: Monitor Brightness Down Key
However nothing happens when I reboot and attempt to use these commands. I have xbacklight installed as each of these commands work perfectly fine when typed into the terminal.
I have enabled the brightness control on my Nvdia drivers by adding a script: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia-brightness.conf the contents of which is
Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" BoardName "GeForce 9400M" Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1" EndSection
However when I try and use the keyboard shortcuts nothing happens. I thought this may be because they are already mapped in the system so I tried mapping them to shift++ and shift+_ but those bindings also did not work.
Any ideas on how:
A) I can get the system brightness controls to work again.
B) how I can get the custom short cuts to work using xbacklight.
I am running Ubuntu 13.04 on a Late 2009 MacBook 6,1 (Yes I know..., however I am solely using Ubuntu on this device no OS X can be found :D)
