hello doing several tests to solve the low brightness of the screen I set xorg set up with vesa driver and it seems that I solved the problem but is there the possibility to adjust it via app on the desktop?

#!/bin/sh
 
 activeOutput=$(xrandr | grep -e " connected [^(]" | sed -e "s/\([A-Z0-9]\+\) connected.*/\1/")
#manually edit the last number to the brightness number you want 1 is max, 0 is lowest brightness
 xrandr --output $activeOutput --brightness .35000000000000000000

if you need more info ask
used to have a gui but it became tedious
if you need several different brightness settings save several files with different names
if you really want a gui i can look for it
