Happy year end.
I am using Opensuse 12.1 with gnome 3 on my thinkpad. But when ever i adjust the brightness settings, When i shutdown and reboot, the brightness is again set to full. (It doesn’t retain the brightness setting). Also, I didnt hear any login sound.
Laptop configurtation: IBM thinkpad ( Intel C2D, 4GB memory, 250GB HDD, No dedicated graphics).
So I think the basic problem is the startup applications are not working right. To get to your startup applications do this:
Alt-F2: gnome-session-properties <enter>
To get a Login sound go to Startup Programs Tab and find **Gnome Login Sound ** and edit the listing. The command there does not work. If I enter a player name and a sound file, it works. You can try this:
This works. The program Play works fine, you just need to find some suitable sound files. So, you could add in a program to set your brightness here as well.
