pinebook tech tips
if the display is flickering on shutdown (sometimes it has weird patterns as the power is cut)
add a script in /usr/lib/systemd/system-shutdown/
echo 0 > /sys/class/backlight/edp-backlight/brightness
make it executable
boom now the backlight is disabled right before the kernel halt procedure is called. no flicker
@haskal is this linked to the pinebook distro or a generic Linux thing? I experience similar stuff in NixOS
