    I am using a radeon X800 video card which is not supported by the fglrx driver.
    My monitor brightness is at zero,but it is still too bright.
    Pretty much all the search results I get from google are about laptop keyboard
    brightness function keys.
    I am on a desktop.
    I have tried the brightness apps in the package manager and they don't do anything
    with the default radeon driver.
    Is there a config file I can edit or some other way I can drop the default brightness
    down a bit?
    The xorg configuration is dynamically generated,so trying to mess with that would mean coming
    up with a whole new xorg.conf and breaking auto detection.
    I really don't want to try that.

    Didn't figure out the brightness problem, but I got it toned down
    a bit with a darker theme and changing the background in firefox.
