V5 LED brightness control

I’ve just received and assembled my V5 zynthian (AMAZING, it’s so nice and polished!) but I use my synths in a dark environment and I would like to know if there is a setting somewhere for setting led and screen brightness (if possible)

Hi Pastitas,

For controlling display brightness:

echo n > /sys/class/backlight/rpi_backlight/brightness

where n is an integer from 0 to 255. We will integrate this in the UI ASAP. Please, open a feature request in the issue tracker.

Regarding the RGB LEDs, it’s a bit more tricky. Indeed, it’s not implemented, although it 's not difficult at all. Please, open a second feature request and i will do the task in the next weeks.

Regards

Hi @Pastitas !

The new brightness control screen is implemented in testing branch. It’s in the admin menu.
It include 2 controllers for display & LED brightness and it’s saved in the configuration, so it’s restored at boot.

Please, test and tell me if it works for you.

Regards,
