I tried to increase my screen brightness using the brightness keys but it doesn’t work. Then I tried running the
xbacklight -inc 5 command but that didn’t work either.
My laptop has both intel and Nvidia GPUs but I am using Nvidia only to reduce screen tearing. So how do I have intel_backlight?!
~ ls /sys/class/backlight
community/light 1.2.2-2 [installed]
By default Bspwm edition uses
xbacklight to control brightness. This works only with intel cards. Your Nvidia card may be inducing some friction.
Try what xircon suggested.
yay -S light to install the package.
Then try running following commands.
light -A 5 to increase brightness.
light -U 5 to decrease brightness.
Please report if these work or not.
