• \[SOLVED\] Failed \[...\] backlight:eeepc/wmi.service


    I’ve been getting this error for a while now during boot, it wasn’t there when I installed Antergos (Feb 20, 2014), and I don’t recall when it started appearing.

      
    Failed to start Load/Save Screen Backlight Brightness of backlight:eeepc/wmi  
    
    

    I am not using an [i:ig3usiof]eeepc[/i:ig3usiof], in fact I’m using a desktop PC, so it’s a curious error. I just ignored it since my display is working fine.

    What I’d like to know is if it was safe to disable it? I just want to make sure because my display may not work anymore if I do disable it.

  • It’s okay to remove it although the error should not be appearing with the latest systemd 211. See here for more info: [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=178003][0]">[https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=178003][1]

    Cheers!

  • I think I just updated to systemd 211 and I confirm that it’s now not giving out the error.
