Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Hi There,

   I have a HP DV3-2154CA laptop and i cannot control my display brightness. Not from power management, or from applet. I had the same problem on 9.10 and was hoping it was fixed on 10.04. Due to this issue my laptop is always on 100% brightness and because of which it drains the battery a lot faster than on windows. I want to use Ubuntu as my only operating system and I cannot because of this issue as I am a student and need to carry my laptop with me the whole day. I have tried various workarounds and mods but all invain. I would really appreciate if you can fix this issue with 9.10 as well as 10.04. Please contact me if you need any more info on my hardware.

Thanks & Regards,

Abhi

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. A new version of Gnome Power Manager is available on Maverick and we are wondering if this bug is still an issue for you with that version? Could you please test and comment back? Thanks in advance.

I have an HP Pavilion dv3-2106tu notebook with Ubuntu 10.04 and can't adjust the brightness. Same issue with the reporter.
