Brightness not working after upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04

I had the same issue with Ubuntu 20.04 but I managed to resolve it with the help found on this forum, but now when I upgraded to 22.04 the same issue happens again.
I guess the Nvidia driver version doesn’t matter but here it is just in case: 515.65.01
Kernel: 5.15.0-46-generic

This is my grub file:

# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterward to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nvidia.NVreg_RegistryDwords=EnableBrightnessControl=1 acpi_backlight=vendor amdgpu.backlight=0 acpi_osi=linux"

I have Legion 5 with Ryzen 7, iGPU is AMD, and the dedicated GPU is Nvidia, currently, I’m on switchable graphics.

ls /sys/class/backlight

amdgpu_bl0  ideapad  nvidia_0

When I use brightness keys then the brightness file in ideapad is updated and this is not reflected on the laptop.
But if I manually edit the brightness file in amdgpu_bl0 then I see the brightness change on the laptop.

I tried changing the acpi_backlight option to video, vendor and native, but neither of those worked.

So my question is how to force the OS/kernel (or whatever) to update amdgpu_bl0 instead of ideapad.

If amdgpu_bl0 changes brightness, you have switched to hybrid graphics. In that case you should remove

amdgpu.backlight=0 nvidia.NVreg_RegistryDwords=EnableBrightnessControl=1

from kernel cmdline.
The brightness control is handled by gnome-settings-daemon which picks the backlight device based on assumptions that can’t be overridden, unfortunately.

This is how it looks like now: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=linux"
but still, the brightness is not working.
Also maybe it’s worth mentioning, I’m using KDE, so I guess I don’t use gnome-settings-daemon

In KDE, power devil is doing the same with the same logic. Since it now uses the (defunct) ideapad handle, maybe raise an issue with the ideapad-laptop module devs.

Attaching it here since someone else might benefit from the answers on the Launchpad.

Add acpi_backlight=video to your kernel command line. Worked great for me, AMD GOU and Nvidia dedicated GPU. You can get rid of the amdgpu.backlight and nvidia.NVreg_Registry stuff.

Please verify the fix with latest released driver 525.116.03 and share test results.
