Screen Brightness reset to maximum after each restart in Ubuntu

I just installed Ubuntu 13.10 in my Dell Inspiron 3421. Previously there was no problem with the screen brightness.

But in Ubuntu 13.10 i was having the problem with screen brightness. I normally work with low screen brightness.

But whenever i restart my Laptop the Screen Brightness was set to maximum. If you are also having this same problem then i have found the fix for this. Let’s see how i was able to fix the screen brightness issue.

First open the Terminal and type

sudo gedit /etc/rc.local

Ubuntu 13.10 Terminal

and it will open file(rc.local in gedit) then add the following code just above the line exit 0

echo 7 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

You can change 7 which is the brightness level.

Touch In Order – Windows 8.1 App

Finally i have Windows 8.1 app in the Windows app store. I build this app with the help of my friend. We have developed a number game to click the numbers in regular order during Windows 8.1 DevCamp. MIC Nepal had organized Windows 8.1 App DevCamp. This App is written in Visual C#. This app was selected as one of the best app in that DevCamp.

The numbers are in random order and there is a time limit for you to complete the Challenge.

Touch In Order – Visit the App page.

Update (10 June, 2014): I have developed similar game for Android. You can get it in Google Play Store Touch in Order.

C++ project – Encryption and Decryption

As a project in C++ during my College, i choose Encryption and Decryption as my project. I am implemented very simple technique for Encryption and Decryption.

The encryption and decryption is done on the basis of letter shifting method.

For example if the encryption key is 5 then for the word A the value of A after will be F.

If you are unclear about what i am talking then seeing my source code will make you understand what i am talking about.

Source Code @ github.

I hope you will be able to understand this code easily. If not then don’t forget to write to me.
