Hello everyone.

It looks like I'm not the first person to have this problem, but since I'm new in the Ubuntu community, I don't know how to launch the terminal. There you have it; I have a NC110 (Samsung) and I'm not able to tweak the screen's brightness.

What are the steps to follow?

Original question in French:

Bonjour à tous.

Apparemment je ne suis pas le seul à avoir ce problème mais je suis tout nouveau dans la communauté ubuntu. Donc je ne sais pas comment accéder à la commande pour entrer les divers codes... Voilà, j'ai un NC110 (samsung) et je n'arrive pas à modifier la puissance de l'éclairage de l'écran.

Quelle est la marche à suivre?

We cannot test this due to lack of harware but it seems that the updated Voria Tools >2.0 support brightness control on NC110 (see this post on Voria forums). You can install the Voria tools by adding the following ppa to your sources:
