Xubuntu 12.10 does not save screen brightness


Dears,

my Xubuntu does not save the setup of the screen brightness.
I already check on Internet for such problem.
I did the following actions but it does not work at all.

In file /etc/acpi/save-brightness.sh I put the following :

#!/bin/bash
cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness > /etc/acpi/brightness

save file

sudo chmod +x /etc/acpi/save-brightness.sh
cd /etc/rc0.d
sudo ln -s ../acpi/save-brightness.sh K99-save-brightness

Do same in the /etc/rc6.d directory

edit /etc/rc.local:
cat /etc/acpi/brightness > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
save file.

Thanks.
Bye,
Bruno
