Linux Software Brightness Adjustment

Using the DDC/CI program, here is an example of the ddcutil tool.

#Install ddcutil tool:
sudo apt-get install ddcutil -y
#Support DDC/CI monitors for detection
sudo ddcutil detect
#Adjust the monitor brightness, <value> should be modified to 0-100 value
sudo ddcutil setvcp 10 <value>
