New RPi Touchscreen setting brightness - how?

Fri Sep 11, 2015 9:16 pm

Hey!

Does somebody know how to set the LCD brightness and if needed completely turn off the backlight of the all new 7" touchdisplay?

There is a directory

Code: Select all

/sys/class/backlight  
but with nothing available inside.

And as someone already posted

Code: Select all

 xset dpms force off 
does not do the job. It only blanks the screen to black leaving the backlight turned on.

Any ideas?
