[Bug 1345499] [NEW] [Lenovo ThinkPad X220] kernel 3.13 i915 brightness settings broken when going from docked -> undocked
You have been subscribed to a public bug:
The brightness control on the Lenovo ThinkPad x220 is no longer working
after undocking. It is stuck an the lowest level and can't by changed
with the hotkeys. There is /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/ which has
no effect. The bug occurs when using kernel 3.13 on 12.04 and on 14.04.
WORKAROUND: Set the brightness through /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/
The hotkeys are working again after setting the brightness once on the command line.
