Linux Mint 12 (64bit), on an Acer Aspire 7730g. Upon every boot, the screen brightness is set very very low. Easily fixed via the function keys, but still a very annoying thing to do after every boot. Is there a way to set the brightness permanently?
NB: Interestingly, I had the same problem when Ubuntu was installed on the same laptop, so I'm a bit perplexed about how did this setting survive a complete OS reinstall?
dmesg output available here.
Another update: I don't know if this is related, but every time I reboot, my wireless is off, bluetooth is on, and Num Lock is off; all three the exact opposite of what I want them to be. If this is not related, it may become another question.
