Only problem I have there is I can not control the BACKLIGHT_CONTROL
as it does not come up

Example:
$ xrandr --q12 --prop
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y
axis) 310mm x 174mm
        EDID:
                00ffffffffffff0030e4010200000000
                00130103801f11780a8845955a568d28
                23505400000001010101010101010101
                010101010101561d56c6500020303020
                350036ae100000190000000000000000
                00000000000000000000000000fe004c
                4720446973706c61790a2020000000fc
                004c503134305748322d544c41310039
        BACKLIGHT: 9 (0x00000009)       range:  (0,9)
        Backlight: 9 (0x00000009)       range:  (0,9)
        scaling mode:   Full
                supported: None         Full         Center       Full aspect
   1366x768       60.0*+
   1360x768       59.8
   1024x768       60.0
   800x600        60.3
   640x480        59.9
HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

And if I try to set it, this the error I get:
$ xrandr --q12 --output LVDS1 --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL native
X Error of failed request:  BadName (named color or font does not exist)
  Major opcode of failed request:  147 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  11 (RRQueryOutputProperty)
  Serial number of failed request:  31
  Current serial number in output stream:  31

or

$ xrandr --output LVDS1 --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL native
X Error of failed request:  BadName (named color or font does not exist)
  Major opcode of failed request:  147 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  11 (RRQueryOutputProperty)
  Serial number of failed request:  31
  Current serial number in output stream:  31

So is there any other way to get around this problem of my desktop
freezing every now and then

Dale
