Brightness Control Does Nothing


The brightness slider (bottom right of my screen, on the task bar, near the date) has never worked. I can slide it up and down and nothing happens. It's been like this for about a year and I'm only just getting around to posting it here. It's of course not a massive issue, but it is annoying.

Can anyone suggest anything please? I saw another post that suggested a clean install, but if that's the only thing I can try, I will have to write it off as something just have to live with.


You might try installing the Soft brightness gnome extension

and see if it works for you.

Ffsss...I'm such an idiot for not asking about this sooner :laughing:

That fixed it.

Thanks very much indeed!
