Something that annoys me a lot is using a phone with a bright display when in darkness. I wish that the brightness setting on the Jolla would have a lower minimum value. Possibly have a checkbox to go even darker (call it "night mode" or something if you wish) if it isn't "user friendly" enough to just make the slider cover a larger range of values.

echo 1 > /sys/bus/platform/devices/pm8xx-led/leds/wled/brightness

will set to minimum brightness. It is dimmer than the currently adjustable dimming. Still readable when no-other lights around.

Interesting, I tried writing to lcd-backlight/brightness and noticed it seemed to be capped at 12 (as is the GUI slider with 'automatically adjust brightness' checked), didn't realise wled also related to the screen backlight. Being able to go all the way down to 1 via the GUI would be nice.

This looks like a duplicate of this question. Also, I think it should be possible to change (lower) color temperature, as lower color temperature (redder screen) makes it way more comfortable to view screens in dark conditions.

@gukke oh, indeed, I couldn't find it when searching. My bad. A colour temperature setting would be interesting.

@kimmoli One x is missing. It's "pm8xxx-led".

User should be able to customize the minimum and maximum brightness levels, and the amount of effect of automatic brightness switch.
