screen brightness changes depending on which application is run
 
Hi Nate,

Thank you for the reply.* My machine is a box sitting away from me and doesn't have a ambient light sensor.*


Can the problem be gnome or the LCD monitor related?



Jeff

Jeff,

Does your machine have an ambient light sensor?*

Light from the monitor, reflecting off of you, will often trigger changes in the amount of light the ambient light sensor is seeing.

Happens most with large changes like switching from a bright white (browser) background to a dark one, just as you describe in your symptoms.

Is your monitor an LED type? It could have dynamic brightness. My tv does the same thing - also annoying.

I have also seen that "feature" on an HP monitor with LED backlight. I believe it was a feature one could turn off in the monitor's built-in OSD menu.
