This article write about how to enable Backligh during login in Fedora.

Step 1: Open your Terminal

Step 2: Type the following in your terminal


cd /etc/default

cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.bak

sudo gedit grub

Step 3: The grub file would have opened now with the Gedit text editor, now find the line which starts with “ GRUBCMDLINELINUX =” and append the following text somewhere in the middle or at last or even at the first”

acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor

Step 4: Now save the file and close the text editor and get back to terminal and update the grub as follows

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Step 5: After grub has been successfully updated, reboot the system and check whether are you getting the backlight working like charm and it should definitely work on HP laptops, even it should work on other laptops too. If not please comment below, we can seek for better solution.

Other solution

Check your graphics drivers, this is a common cause. The backlight device only work when some video capabilities were found. You can found your graphic info with: /sbin/lspci | grep VGA and install your graphic controllers.
