I can't seem to control brightness on my X1 yoga (1st gen OLED) and it appears to be because of the Wayland display protocol.


Any ideas how to get brightness controls working?

I haven't dealt with this myself, but it appears that the regular GNOME brightness doesn't work on OLED displays. This GNOME extension might help.
