@sebastka, @Lyude

That's great! Where did you find that information? Do you know which vertsion will have it and will zen kernel also be patched?

I'm on the latest kernel (tried both zen and standard) and the brightness control still doesn't work for me (neither by using function keys or KDE controls).

I have Gigabyte Aero 15 with 4K OLED panel.

also-for any other arch users wondering, these patches will be going upstream in the next day or so.

Hooray, thanks for your work!

@phush0 Hi! I'm not an Arch user, but I am the person who wrote these patches. After I noticed some bizarre behaviour on one of my laptop's display panels Anarsoul pointed me at your issue with brightness levels not being reset properly after suspend/resume. Do you think you could send me an email at the address I'm using for this account? I'd like to see if I can figure out what's going on with your panel and whether the issues it's having are similar to the weird machine I've got locally.

@Scimmia thanks, I'll fix it in next revision.

Please see the warning here:

phush0 commented on 2020-11-20 08:26

only problem I have is that on every restart and lock screen I have to press +- to set correct brightness, e.g. when screen locks it will became darker than it is in Gnome. When I log I press once + once - to set correct value again which for my display is 275. Any suggestions ? Actually if resolution is changed I lost brightness level which is strange

There's v2 of this series, but it's not trivial to port it to 5.9. I'm not going to do that since simpler patch works just fine for me.

There are new patches available sins September - Patches are 5 now not just 2. Now patches support PWM backlight on some panels.

Ok, I got around installing this and it works very nicely. Thanks so much anarsoul!

@anarsoul: Would you be so kind to add the Bluetooth LL PRivacy BLE patch? And by the way against 5.9.1?

Since most users are using this kernel on laptops I suggest most users will have the issue that BT BLE devices does not reconnect after booting and they need to remove and repair all BT BLE devices every time.

Thanks in advance
