With a recent update, the brightness and keyboard backlight functions stopped working from the internal keyboard. With the external keyboard, the display brightness can still be controlled. I tried different kernel versions, but that does not change anything. How can I fix this?
I’m on elementary OS 7.1 (Ubuntu 22.04) with a 13" 12th gen Framework laptop.
As elementary is based on Ubuntu 22.04 (as Ubuntu 22.04 is supported and tested, I cannot fathom why any updates would change the behavior.
Can I get a look at your grub parameters?
We’re looking at this section here, to make sure the parameters are correct as outlined below.
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash module_blacklist=hid_sensor_hub"
sudo update-grub (fixed typo)
If instead, you’re using the /etc/modprobe.d/framework-als-blacklist.conf approach, this may be why it’s not working. We recommending using the above grub method as it is tested.
So, for some reason, grub was configured as
quiet splash while I’m pretty sure I added the
module_blacklist parameter at some point during the installation.
Anyway, it’s working again now. Thanks!
Awesome, delighted to hear this has been resolved.
Just want to note that the update step is
sudo update-grub, with a hyphen in between.
Whoops, that was a typo - thanks and fixed.
