Notes on OLED on Linux

OLED screens have had issues on Linux. Main problem is unable to control the screen brightness. It looks like there are some ways to do it now

Looks like icc-brightness should help. Install instructions are from here

sudo apt install -y liblcms2-dev
git clone https://github.com/udifuchs/icc-brightness.git
cd icc-brightness
make

You can run the utility with

./icc-brightness

Installing it will set it up to automatically run on log in.

sudo make install

Log out and back in and it should work.
