intel-gpu-tools - register 0xC8254 not available

Hello,

I have Dell Inspiron 3593 with preinstalled Ubuntu. It has very low backlight PWM frequency, probably only 200 Hz (this problem occurs also in different Dell laptops), which is bad for my eyes, so I'm trying to change it. I read that it's possible by installing intel-gpu-tools and running a script which edits the value of 0xC8254 register. However, when I run "sudo intel-reg read 0xC8254", it causes segmentation failure. I've disabled secure boot in BIOS, but it doesn't help. I found out that when I run "sudo intel-reg read" with a different register number, which is described in text files in "registers" folder, it returns some value. Could you please tell me if there's some different register which I can edit to change PWM frequency? Here's the copy of my "registers" folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1YLDO9I_Fi_ro6_Ib8y092TZFv_sDjfhH?usp=sharing I got no help from Dell support. It's very important, because it makes my new laptop almost unusable.

Best wishes

Hello Username2020, 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

 

I would like to let you know that Intel does not provide direct downloads and technical support for Linux drivers. The Intel Graphics Linux driver is primarily supported through the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), the Linux distribution vendor, or by the Intel Open Source Technology Center at https://01.org/linuxgraphics

 

I will highly recommend you to check this inquiry directly with your distro's community: https://ubuntu.com/community 

 

You might find the Linux* Operating System Vendor Websites page useful:
