whatever added a comment to T6737: Sway wm bugs.

Perhaps I worded it incorrectly. Sway is configurable with config file, however, any configuration file present in ~/.config/sway results in crashed desktop.

Fair enough, we'll wait for kyrios to comment. In the meanwhile, what can I do to change brightness on wayland? echo number >> /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness isn't working, so I'm having to switch to plasma every time I want to change brightness.

Huh. You're right. It does NOT work in X either. So, what can I try next?

whatever added a comment to T6733: Light doesn't seem to work.

Except Light isn't an X application. It communicates directly with the kernel to modify values in /sys/class/backlight/ to change brightness. I believe other utilities such as acpilight and brightnessctl do the same. Also, light is one of the recommended applications for brightness control as a replacement for xbacklight on sway wiki, which is why I installed it at all.

whatever added a comment to T2311: acpilight.

Hol' up. If acpilight is going to remove xbacklight, I believe it does ask for confirmation from user for so. And since user shall be installing this package manually in 100% of cases, we can say with sufficient confidence that they know what they're doing. Even then, if acpilight is enough to do xbacklight's work, there shouldn't be any problem just going forward and removing xbacklight.

whatever added a comment to T2311: acpilight.

@kyrios123 I've been trying out swaywm, which is wayland only, and brightness control is one of the last pet-peeves. Can we simply show a warning before installing acpilight that it would replace xbacklight?

That's kinda what I was talking about (it seems little to do with vlc, qbittorrent)...On a clean boot, you can see the entries and VLC will show up, then it enters this broken state where it won't show new systray icons till you remove/readd the widget. The blank entries seems the easiest way to tell that it's in that broken state. I need a comparison of apples with apples. If you compare to another distro that wasn't running 5.12, then that's not telling much (it certainly didn't used to do this).

A quick look at the tracker and I could find these two which seemed to be reproducible when it's in that state:

12 (the keyboard shortcuts):

I like the ALT Key as my window-management-key, here some examples:
alt + b = hide window borders
alt + numpad 4 = pin window to left side
alt + numpad 1 = pin window to lower left side
alt + numpad 5 = maximize window
and so on..

i don't know if other people do that or like that.

I have HD3000 integrated graphics, which should be fine, because it has been so far. This is with latest update with rebuilt VLC this morning. Anything else I can try?

One advantage of xbacklight is extremely fine tuning. My laptop display supports over 700 steps, and even with percentage shortcuts, I could go as low as 1%, perfect for late night streams...

whatever added a comment to T863: Display Brightness.

Somehow, this fixed itself on me. Happened sometime before clr-boot-manager, so can't pin on that. I'm sorry I cannot say when, exactly, because I set new keyboard shortcuts for xbacklight and used them. Tried default brightness keys by accident couple of weeks ago and they worked. This happened to anyone?

With budgie 11 and eventual shift to wayland, xbacklight won't work anymore. I found acpilight for drop-in replacement for xbacklight. I have yet to test it, but if there is no permanent fix until budgie 11 is released, this might provide a temp fix then.
