#4016 closed enhancement (fixed)

Touch: change brightness and mode

Reported by: erikos Owned by: erikos
Priority: Normal Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: 0.97.x
Severity: Major Keywords: touch
Cc: Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

This missed the 0.98 boat. One idea was to make it available as a Display device icon for the Frame. http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Features/Display_Device

We have a workaround: use the brightness keys in laptop mode.

Powerd accesses:

/sys/class/backlight/dcon-bl/brightness and /sys/devices/platform/dcon/monochrome which is hardware specific.

Test: echo 13 > /sys/class/backlight/dcon-bl/brightness

For future reference the design mail-list thread on this was "[FEATURE] [DESIGN] Display Device" http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/sugar-devel/2012-August/039152.html and has some crossover discussion with #4015
