    Default Brightness in Gnome

    How do I adjust the brightness in Gnome?

    I use gnome long time ago and the feature wasn't there. I have not use since so can't help much. Best bet is to just adjust it directly from your monitor control buttons.
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    The thing is most of the time it is fine, but for some things I have to change it temporariliy and don't want to have to fiddle with the monitor everytime I want to run somethinbg that needs to be brighter or softer, whatever the case may be.

    If there is no way to do it in gnome, then a way to do it for X would bne fine as well.

    Well, you can do this with the tools of the proprietary drivers if you're using them: nvidia-settings (nvidia) and amdcccle (ATI) both can adjust brigthness, contrast and saturation. If you're on Intel, I don't know.

    Yes was considering installing the proprietary driver for my ATI card, but I would prefer to keep the OS driver at this point if possible. There must be a way to set brightness without using the proprietary drivers.

    Yes. There is/used to be a Gnome brightness applet : brightness applet gnome doesn't work

    I had tried that before starting the thread.

    I also tried using System->Configuration->Power Management to do it, but I do not have a brightness slider like shown at the gnome site here:
    GNOME Power Manager

    that slider is not available if the graphics driver you are using
    doesn't support adjusting the brightness..

    hence another poster mentioned the need for the non-open driver..

    There are also gnome-power-manager applets, one of these is for brightness
    (Disclaimer: I have no experience with it).

    http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome...eneral.html.en

    Should also be available in openSUSE.
