Default DDC/CI control?

Hi,

I am desperate for some sort of brightness control! I read here

Quote:
new feature for the DisplayLink DL-4xxx series available from DisplayLink driver release 8.1 Alpha as a preview. From the general release 8.1 M0, any user will be able to change brightness and contrast on USB monitors using any utility complying with the DDC/CI standard. This allows users to use a single application to change brightness and contrast on all their displays, either connected through any DisplayLink product, or to a standard computer graphics card.
Is there any chance for DDC/CI control with Linux? I've installed ddcutil

HTML Code:
~$ sudo ddcutil usbenvironment

There has got to be something I can do? I've had this monitor for what seems like a couple years and have been waiting to be able to use it at night. All of my other monitors have a much lower brightness and it's just not going to work to have something that leaves a view-burn in my retina every time I look at it..

I'm willing to beta test, debug, anything!!

Hi,

DDC/CI control is not currently supported by the Linux driver.

The idea has already been suggested (http://support.displaylink.com/forum...n-windows-oses) but so far is way less popular than the Windows equivalent, and therefore the priority of enabling it on Linux is not high at the moment.

Cheers,
Michal
