I ran some commands without completely understanding them while trying to get screen brightness working and now I'm stuck with a nasty symlink in '/sys/class/backlight/asus_laptop' that I am trying to get rid of.
I have tried
sudo rm /sys/class/backlight/asus_laptop sudo rm '/sys/class/backlight/asus_laptop' su root rm /sys/class/backlight/asus_laptop sudo rm /sys/class/backlight/asus_laptop
Going right into directory and typing
rm asus_laptop, changing ownership and using Thunar to try to remove it.
rm: cannot remove '/sys/class/backlight/asus_laptop': Operation not permitted
Same goes for unlink, rmdir doesn't work, and Thunar fails.
The permissions on it are lrwxrwxrwx
How can I remove it?
