Let me start off by letting you all know I am VERY new to Linux, never used it before and wanted to give it a try so I can learn, etc.
If this is the wrong forum for this please let me know, and be gentle.
I just installed Fedora 8, instillation went fine and all that, however once Im am in the GUI my screen goe sVERY dark, almost unreadable. My brightness Fn keys on the keyboard will not work for me and the power settings also do no affect the brightness in any way.
I found this site:
That addresses the same issues I am having, however the language is over my head at this point.
I downloaded and unzipped the file from the 2nd to last post onto my Desktop (Im still having issues just navigating the file system) I then attempted (as root) to run the makepkg command within the folder as directed by the site. However I get a "makepkg: command not found" leaving me completely lost and not really knowing where to go from there.
The screen is currently set to Auto Lite Detection, meaning its almost to dark for me to even see the screen, so its been difficult, and very eye straining to attempt to do more reasearch on this matter.
Any help you guys can give me, as in hopefully a step-by-step of what to do/type would be great so that I can start actually learning how to use this system.
Shameless Top as I still need help.
