I’ve recently encountered something quite annoying in Xfce. I can control my brightness with my Fn key shortcuts only if I am not in a menu. This means that if I go in to the power manager plugin panel icon’s menu and accidentally turn my brightness all of the way down, blackening my screen, my only methods of restoring it are to click blindly in hopes of either getting off of the power manager’s menu or upping my brightness. As this may cause me to click on something undesirable, this is not a good method. However, being in a menu blocks all of my non-Syskey keyboard inputs, including Ctrl+Alt+T and my Fn keys, so it appears that my only other course of action is to REISUB or to change in to a tty that will also be totally black and therefore useless (the ttys also ignore my Fn keys).

My question then is this: What should I do when I’ve accidentally turned my brightness all of the way down with the power manager’s menu?

#StackBounty: #lubuntu #display #brightness #redshift #f.lux F.lux or redshift and lubuntu issues

Bounty: 50

I’m a noob. Putting this out there right away. Using Lubuntu 19

I want a blue light filter. So I’ve installed f.lux, but when I adjusted the brightness on my laptop it toggles or flashes between the screen without f.lux and then back to f.lux as I increased or lowered brightness. So I uninstalled f.lux and reinstalled it. Now it doesn’t work at all.

As for Redshift, when I change the brightness it automatically just switches back to the brightness level that redshift has assigned. This is quite different then how it acts on other operating systems where you can lower or increase the brightness yet keep the effect of redshift–which is all I want. Can anyone help, or should I just install Ubuntu?
