Last line of package() should read :
install -m 755 ${srcdir}/ ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/brightness

PKGBUILD fixed to work with original repo. Looks like the author has done a lot of improvement and it's much better now.

I ran into an issue with the PKGBUILD that I managed to fix.

I was clued in when this line failed: sed -i 's/env python$/env python2/' src/

So I went searching for and found it missing in the Upstream github tree.

Here is a fork that has in the src directory:

So I downloaded the source for that manually, and popped it into /tmp/packerbuild-0/brightness-git/brightness-git/src/Brightness-build/src (remember to chmod correctly).

Then I commented out the lines in the PKGBUILD that would re-clone the Upstream git tree or remove the packerbuild-0 directory.

Yes, this was using the packer frontend to AUR. Adjust for your frontend.

Side note, you can modify lines 52 and 54 with the --gamma option (just before the closing double-quotes) if you have any particular calibration (RGB values) for your monitor.

Please fix the PKGBUILD. I am considering forking to add sliders that allow one to set / save gamma values.
