Display control help

Recommended Posts

So, i finally got my Mojave 10.14.3 up and running perfectly. Did a full install by myself and im amazed at actually how easy it was. Only problem im having is with the Display brightness slider. Im not using Applebacklight kext i am using Whatevergreen.kext. My specs are as follows:

Toshiba Satellite S75-A7221

i7-4700MQ 2.30ghz

intel HD 4600

like i said,everything is running perfectly except for the display brightness bar in System Preferences, there is none?

How can i get the brightness slider? Im currently using brightness slider app from the App Store but it dims contrast.

Oh and thank you Niresh for providing the OS

You probably do not have backlight in the display activated. Follow this guide https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-laptop-backlight-control-using-applebacklightfixup-kext.218222/

i tried that method and rebooted and when loading it reboots, bootloops. i have a brightness control from the app store and it works with F2 and F3. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

is there an easier way to understand the patching because I keep getting infinite boots and I have to redo my whole system. Ive tried compiling from git and get stuck at make. iasl errors. I have Maciasl but don't know what to do with it. I have everything running perfect and smooth and I would hate to make it crash again.
