Hello all,

I am using an HP Pavillion laptop with AMD Turion 64.

My system is a dual boot Windows-Vista/OpenSUSE-10.3.

Brightness controls works perfectly under Vista, but they are dead under OpenSUSE.

If I try to use nvidia-setting, I get the following answer:

You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.

But the /etc/X11/xorg.conf it's correct for this driver:
Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce Go 6150"
BusID "0:5:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
VendorName "NVIDIA"

And that's the begin of my /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager:
@linux-turion64:~> cat /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
## Path: Desktop/Display manager
## Type: string(Xorg,Xgl)
## Default: "Xorg"
# Xgl is an experimental Xserver using OpenGL for rendering.
# Right now only the glx backend is supported, which runs on top of a
# standard Xorg server providing OpenGL.
# Set this to 'Xgl' and run SuSEconfig only if you want to run your
# displaymanager (kdm/gdm/xdm) on Xgl on top of Xorg.
# This setting is case sensitive.
# Warning! This is highly experimental.

As additional notes: I use compiz and I have enabled Desktop effects but I have disabled 3D Windows.

All the brightness applets I tried are worthless.

TKS for your attention.
