I am new to Ubuntu.
recently, I changed to the Xfce desktop. Everything went well, except for the brightness which couldn’t be set using the keyboard. After some tries, I solved the pb with a script linked to the keyboard, that set the brightness using “xrandr –output (my screen) –brightness (value)“. It went well.
I restarted my computer the next day and IT happened: the brightness changed every 1 second to a little darker or brighter setting. like, every second. Unusable.
I searched on the internet I found this : random event changes screen brightness automatically. (image :https://i.stack.imgur.com/oEh0o.png)
I followed the instructions, and restarted my computer. The brightness was fixed, but the brightness is now fixed to the maximum permanently (the max being 1, in the xrandr config). Meaning, if I change the value using xrandr, it go back to the maximum almost instantly.
I deleted the “fix” (in the 10-quirks.conf), but nothing changed.
can you help me ?
