Brightness Controller

This is version 2.3.4 of Brightness Controller, ported to Python 3 and QtPy. It supports an arbitrary number of displays!

If you like this, do not forget to give us a Star! GitHub stars People already did!

Installation via PPA

Thanks to package maintainer @apandada1, we have PPA repository For Ubuntu and likewise users:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apandada1/brightness-controller
sudo apt update
sudo apt install brightness-controller

Manual Installation

First, install

QtPy
.
sudo apt install python3-qtpy

Sometimes it is not enough to install and integrate

QtPy
, so you might also try installing
QtPy
using
pip3
.
pip3 install qtpy

QtPy
is a wrapper that works by using
PyQt
or
PySide
.

It needs either of these to work, and some operating systems come with either of these preinstalled, and some do not.

If your system does not have either of these, you may need to install either

PySide
or
PyQt
. For example, you may have to execute the following:
pip install PySide2

Please check Requirements section for missing dependencies. We prefer using

--user
while installing
QtPy
(and its other dependencies) using
pip
. Installing it in virtual environment may not work as intended.

Next, download the latest zip file from here.

Extract it and open a terminal. Change directory to the

Brightness
folder. Next type this command:
python3 src/init.py

Achean also created a detailed tutorial on how to install it in Debian based on his experience. You can find it here.

Features

The following features are implemented:

  1. Brightness Control
  2. Saving color profile
  3. Loading color profile

We are working on the following features and plan to release these through version 3:

  1. Rewriting GUI to integrate both Brightness Controller simple and normal
  2. Auto-loading of color and brightness settings based on profile
  3. Checking for update

Brightness Controller changes Red, Green and Blue color ratios in the screen through color profile at software level using

xrandr
.

We work on this in our spare time, so can not really promise when the v3 will be released. The current version available is stable and should work as intended.

Requirements

There are several requirements:

  1. python3
  2. python3-qtpy
  3. xrandr support in your system

python3-qtpy
is a wrapper around Qt for Python. You will need either PyQt5, PyQt4, PySide2 or PySide installed in your system.

Bugs

Please test v2.3. Reporting bugs is appreciated.

Can I have just brightness sliders - For Controlling Four displays at the same time?
