Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm using mplayer to view videos. When I try to change the brightness, I get a message: Video attribute 'brightness' is not supported by selected vo & vd. 0 0%
I have a Riva TNT2 Nvidia graphics card
This happened after I upgraded to slackware 10. I have edited the xorg.conf file to use "nv" driver.
When I use xgamma to change the brightness, it works. I have also downloaded the Nvidia drivers from their website. But when I use that driver, I can only change the brightness of the desktop, the video remains unaffected.
So, my question is:
How can I change the brightness in mplayer itself (not using xgamma but using the "3 & 4" keys)
I believe this is a feature of particular video-output drivers from within mplayer. If you go to Preferences, Video, within mplayer (from gmplayer, right-click on the video window) and choose a different video-out driver, it should work. I use "XV" with no problems.
Yes, Megaman X, I can use xgamma. But that becomes really inconvenient at times. If I want to change the brightness when I'm watching a movie, then I have to pause it, and open a terminal, and then use xgamma. I want to set brightness using mplayer itself. I could do this earlier, in Slack 9.1.
