    Default Gnome screen brightness at startup

    Hi guys, I would like to know if there is a way to set screen brightness, on my laptop with 13.2 gnome, not at the maximum level at boot. Thank you

    Hi
    The laptop function keys should set and retain the desired brightness
    over reboots? Else have you looked in the settings->power option to set
    brightness. Some laptops can be configured via the BIOS to set the
    default brightness as well. What model laptop?

    The brughtness set by fn keys is not retained over reboots, I've already looked of the power options in Settings. My Laptop is a VAIO Pro 13, I don't think I could set the brightness on bios.

    My FN keys work, while in that topic they don't. What I need is to keep the brightness I set after rebooting.

    Hi I just figure out how to make your screen persist boots.

    first open terminal and wite this with no quotes

    "su" it will ask for your password, enter it
    then "nautilus" it should open the file explorer

    go to etc/init.d/ and look for boot.local and open it with gedit

    add this at the end

    echo 1000 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness
    exit 0

    save and reboot to check if it worked

    NOTE "1000" should be replaced by the brightness you want after boot AND check that "/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness" pionts to your video card, in my case is a Intel card, maybe is different for you.

    Hope it helps
