Description:

Small plasmoid for controlling brightness of LCD in laptops with smartdimmer tool installed - I guess it exists only on laptops with Nvidia graphic cards.

Install: plasmapkg -i nvidia-brightness.zip
Use +/- plasmoid buttons or mouse wheel while over the plasmoid to change brightness.

Tested on Sony Vaio AW31, with smartdimmer version: NVClock SmartDimmer adjustment tool version 0.8b4

- Did it work on your comp on earlier KDEs?

- I've just installed KDE 4.4.1 on my laptop, I'll check this evening if it works on it, if not I'll try to post new version.

Is smartdimmer working on your comp? Try:
smartdimmer -g
from command line, it should return current brightness.
smartdimmer -s val
should set brightness to val.

smartdimmer does not work with my Dell laptop, here is the message:

Error!
Smartdimmer is only supported on certain (HP/SamsungSony/Zepto) laptops using a Geforce 6200/7x00Go/8x00Go. If you want support on your laptop contact the author.

any chances your current/future version can work?

I'm affraid no )-: My widget uses smartdimmer, so as long as there is no working smartdimmer for your laptop, my plasmoid won't work.

If you have some programming/Linux skills, you can try to change plasmoid source to control brightness in your PC - you have to find the right command for your laptop, maybe something like echo brightnessVal >/some/brightness/file.

Or maybe as the error is saying, contact the autor of smartdimmer (-:
