Hi, I have just installed parrot home in my new laptop (legion 5 15ach6) which has amd ryzen 7 5800h cpu and nvidia 3050ti gpu.
there are two ssd one has windows installed and another has linux and each ssd has separate /boot/efi fat32 partition (i.e one efi partition of linux and another of windows)
The problem is screen brightness control does not work, brightness always stays to 0, when I increase the brightness using slider or keyboard shortcut, the brightness bar increases but the brightness stays the same.
and another problem is how do I switch between the amd integrated gpu and nvidia dedicated gpu…?
the windows had lenovo vantage software which had hybrid mode for switching between amd display or nvidia gpu display but nothing works here in parrot.
besides when updating software it says missing formware as follow
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/amdgpu/*** for module amdgpu
I tried all the solution I found in the internet, like installing the nvidia drivers as follow
apt install nvidia-driver
and downloading the missing amdgpu firmware from github page and moving them to /lib/firmware/amdgpu
but the problem is not solved.
it still says missing firmware
and the brightness still does not work
and I still can’t switch between amd and nvidia gpu.
here are the output of certain commands
