comment My brightness controls aren't working (Ubuntu 14.04), how to fix?
It's a Portege z835-P360. I do not want to put it in the title because the fix simply isn'ty specific to that model or manufacturer. It may not fix all computers true, but it's not specific to this model.

Is toshiba ultrabook specific enough? The thing is I have seen this fix work for at least three other manufactuers on various other forums. So I was hesitant to state hardware in that light in case people thought the problem and the solution would only work on the hardware I list.

comment How do I set preferences for the Guake Terminal?
didn't work. requires me to sudo apt-get install quake even though I have it already and am using it. I am not doing the apt-get install suggested in case it messes up my current quake.
