Since eilin 3.1-2 binaries have no longer setuid root. Instead an udev rule is used to allow access from a group "eilin". This improves security and removes the ugly question box on KDE login when qeilin is started.

To allow running eilin under a non-root user it is now necessary to add that user into the "eilin" group.

goodboy: fixed & released a new version of eilin with a few small fixes.

I'm getting a missing dependencies failure
pacman -S eilin
==> Missing Dependencies:
-> qt
==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build eilin.
==> Restart building eilin ? [y/N]

pacman -S qt does install qt5 but it doesn't help correcting the dependency problem.

New version is out.

* eilin has been rewritten as a library.
* there's a new Qt-based GUI – it is purely optional, if you do not want to install qt, just remove it from makedepends (but you wont get GUI).

dimitar: do you know there is a -T parameter which allow you to use settings for a different monitor? Maybe with "eilin -TS2243 …" the R/G/B parameters would work too.

dimitar commented on 2011-08-24 20:01

@stativ: all of the parameters work. only the -R -G -B parameters don't, so I think you can add the model to the list of supported monitors.

dimitar: thank you very much for your help! I've uploaded version 1.3.1 containing your fix.

Anyway, can I add S2431W to the list of supported monitors? If yes, which configuration worked for you?

dimitar commented on 2011-08-24 11:14

Btw, I forgot to report my model: S2431W

well, after a bit of debugging, I found the problem in loadcfg.c:
< strcpy(&(user_config[home_dir_len+1]), "/.eilin.xml");
> strcpy(&(user_config[home_dir_len]), "/.eilin.xml");
Cheers and thanks again for your work! :)

dimitar: This is handled in code properly. Even if no config is found at all it shouldn't crash, but rather print a message "Cannot open configuration." and exit. The problem must be somewhere else. I've committed a few additional check to the mercurial repository. You may want to check that before I release a new version.

Anyway, thanks for reporting!
