I have an HP 650 notebook, and I just finished installing ubuntu 13.10 . The problem is that brightness function keys don't work ( f2 and f3 ). I tried changing GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and updating grub but it doesn't work.

Directory /sys/class/backlight is empty.

and "lspci | grep -i vga" command outputs the following:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

Any help, please ?


much more later :D I installed ubuntu 14.04 : Perfect ! Not a single problem !

  • I think it's an answer, no ? He answers his own question by saying "I installed 14.04 and the issue is solved". This way, people will see that on HP650, 14.04 solves the problem with brightness.

  • That's my point. I kept using windows all this time and now it's all good with 14.04. I just remembered this question and came here to mention it. May 26 '14 at 2:03
