If I find something interesting on the web that I want to refer to again, or if I write something up that might become a proper blog post someday I often save it as a text file into one of a logical series of directories on my machine.

These files on my local machine are occassionally syncronized with this site. I try to give credit where credit is due whenever the text is not my own.

Brightness keys on Macbook 5,2 in Ubuntu 16.10

Seems like every time I upgrade my MacBook which runs Ubuntu to the latest release I lose the functionality of the brightness keys which are supposed to increase and decrease the brightness of the screen. I always have to run around to figure out that all I need to do is:

Create a file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-nvidia.conf with the following content:

Section "Device"
Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1"
Identifier "Device0"

and reboot.
