[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
package pommed
tag 708150 +patch


Here comes a patch. Not sure how to test every feature, but I can adjust
the LCD backlight with it (the keyboard backlight and sound volume
worked without it anyway).


 - I need mouseemu, else the keyboard keys won't change the backlight
brightness. May be related to running GNOME 3. Drawback of running
mouseemu: the Caps Lock LED won't budge.

 - I had to modify pommed.conf to get the brightness to be adjusted by a
significant amount as max_brightness is enourmous (82311!). Maybe the
step should be scaled relative to max_brightness? Excerpt from my

lcd_sysfs {
        init = -1
        step = 1000
        on_batt = 4000

Regards, Thibaut.
