Brightness Set to Minimum after every reboot

Using Garuda Dragonized. I was facing an issue of brightness being MAXIMUM after every reboot. Then I followed https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/backlight#Backlight_is_always_at_full_brightness_after_a_reboot_with_amdgpu_driver this one. Now brightness set to MINIMUM after every reboot.

System: Lenovo Ideapad 330 - 15ARR
Ryzen 5 2500U with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics.
(fresh installation and system update).

I am not a programmer but scale/change the 255 :man_shrugging: :man_shrugging: :man_shrugging:

BRIGHTNESS=$(($BRIGHTNESS*255/65535))

and
:slight_smile:
or you use this?

    printf '%d\n' "$((level * factor))"

More details please.

What Value should I put instead of 255? I did exactly what the mentioned link is stated.

So I can't guide, maybe some other from our forum user.
Can you change then the brightness to your liking?

And
"While the bug is not addressed, one possible workaround is to modify the stored brightness to within the correct range before it's restored."

If it is a MATE bug you must ask MATE developer.

Yes.. I can change brightness to my liking. I'm using dragonized edition not the mate edition. :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes, ok, I read MATE in your link, cool that's work too :smiley:

All I can say is, play with the values in the file's.
It's all trial and error, but it could be that only maximum and minimum are working.
