xbacklight - not working

Postby makh » 2017-10-01 07:26

Hi

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=833508


Code: Select all
cat /etc/debian_version
9.1


It works on Jessie install, in another partition, of the same laptop.

Is there any way around? It is strange that debian stable has no fix for it.

Thankyou

Graphics: Card: Intel Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller
Display Server: N/A drivers: intel (unloaded: modesetting) tty size: 100x30

Let me see the git, if it can help me.

Strange, that the mostly used package isnt working.

fwiw,
i just replicated the exact same situation on a ubuntu laptop:
- xbacklight shows "No outputs have backlight property"
- light, easily compiled from source, just works

I had filed bug on this, at the time when it was still in testing. Now it is stable. How do these critical things get checked or corrected, if the particular debian maintainer is not responding/updating...?

Dear Site Moderator!

Hello

Please inform, that if a bug report is not acknowledged by the maintainer or a package is outdated (as for xbacklight). Is there no way the Deb Dev Team Lead going to take some appropriate acknowledgement or corrective measures? Are such non responsive bug reports not of any value, if they are concerned to Desktops or laptops. The current stable is now at 9.2.

Kindly excuse me, I may not have been able to understand the information from:
