New script brightness Problems

Hello, maybe someone has this problem too.

After applying the changes from /etc/skel/.config/i3/config to my ~/.config/i3/config. And copied the new script /etc/skel/.config/i3/scripts/ to ~/.config/i3/scripts/, the brightness buttons on my laptop stopped working.

:white_check_mark: The solution was:

That the brightness level in the script ~/.config/i3/scripts/ were set too low for my laptop Display.

This was set like this:


But my laptop display only reacts from a value of 5 and higher.

If someone also has this problem, it would be worth trying to increase this value.

great find… may we should put this default… to make sure this will not happen…
