    Here is my simple Cinamom desktop. A mix of Ambiance and the Mint-X theme.

    Well do you have any other applications installed? As mint is on a desktop I have not changed the brightness.
    I will try it though, and will give you a solution.

    I dual boot with windows. After reboot brightness is at 100%. I normally have it at 40% in Windows. So tried to reduce in Mint, but its not staying after reboot. Thanks anyways.

    KaptainBug i cannot reproduce your issue on the desktop. Have you installed all proprietary graphics drivers?
    Illumination can you test it? Also are you using a 64bit edition Kaptain Bug? I am using 32bit edition.

    Mine is working fine on 64bit laptop.. But i do know this is not necessarily a mint problem, but a ubuntu bug actually that has to do with certain GPU's .. Im looking into it..

    Old kernel bug my mate.
    Faced it myself. You can create an init.d script or update to the latest kernel.

    Yes there is a Kernel update for Mint, it is marked as level 5 but it is safe to use. Ubuntu gives these to you automatically so no issues. install those 4 level 5 updates and try.

    Thank you. illumination PM'd me steps to solve the bug. Its working fine now.
    Btw, how to update the kernel to latest stable release ? I saw a procedure online, but little scared to proceed with it. Any trusted step by step instruction available ? I run 64-bit linux mint version.

    Unless the updater shows it, dont do a kernel upgrade as your risk breaking things. Illumination it will be helpful to people if you post the solution publicly as well.

    Just follow these simple steps:

    If screen brightness is stuck at maximum every startup, install xbacklight

    (sudo apt-get install xbacklight)

    and add "xbacklight -set x" (where 'x' = 0 to 100 desired brightness)

    to the startup applications via dashboard. For example, "xbacklight -set


    I have set brightness for my laptop to 30.
