I have had nothing but trouble trying to get linux working on this laptop, and would really appreciate some help. I recently switched over to the NVIDIA drivers because with the nouveau drivers on kernel 3.5.x I can't suspend. The problem I'm having is that I can't control my backlight with these drivers.
I tried nvclock because I hear that application can change it for me but it crashes and won't run. Is there any way to work around the nvidia drivers and control the screens backlight?
Any help you could provide would be appreciated.
I'm running Fedora 17 with linux 3.5.3-1 on an ASUS G73 but she doesn't seem to like linux very much. The card I'm using is the GTX 460M with the bult-in display (don't need brightness control on the HDMI or VGA connections obviously)
 nevermind, I'm a moron. Forgot that the default xorg.conf doesn't have backlight enabled.
