I have since my last post moved away from Ubuntu, now I am running the #!Crunchbang 10_Statler built on the upcoming Debian Squeeze. Really loving the system.
And I am going to stick with this ditro.
So I am busy working my through all the functions I want to have running, the Fn keys are a big one.
My work in progress post is here, http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic ... -progress/
The previous version of #! was built on Ubuntu 9.04, so brightness was controlled using xbacklight, it seems xbacklight isn't supported on the new platform.
Any ideas of how to control to brightness now?
