Brightness of external monitor connected via docking station

2020-04-29, 10:29 AM

Currently, it is not possible (neither on Linux nor Windows afaik) to control the brightness of an external monitor connected to a Thinkpad through docking station.

The relevant discussion for Linux (i915 i2c-dev failures with recent chips and docking stations) is at https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/intel/issues/37 (started 2+ years ago).

 

Could anyone from Lenovo dev team help? @MarkRHPearson 

Thank you.
