You can also just add that backlight section to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

A file is still missing for this package to work (I had it prior to this package existing, so it worked-by-coincidence for me).

@frank604: I'll pick it up. I've the time and use this, plus, I like seeing PKGBUILDs conform to the standards. :)

Thanks! Looks like our macbook doctor, Patjak, pushed a commit upstream. Does anyone want to maintain this? I no longer use this as I don't suspend anymore and just hibernate since I only use my macbook air afterwork until I sleep. The pkgbuild does need cleaning up to do as it doesn't adhere to the new VCS standard so if you'd like to tackle that and maintain, let me know! Until then, we'll use my frankenstein pkgbuild and I'll just update as we go.

Heads up went to install today and the sha1sums don't match had to manually check and change them in the pkgbuild after that everything is working perfect

Hi Step-2, did you try the suggested fix for it that I wrote? Regen initramfs with i915.

Hi frank604 , my problem is similar to iaculch problem , during boot & after resume the screen is completely black , so i have to login blind , until am loged to the session ( gnome ) the brightness kicks in .

Hi step-2, some more info would be needed. Do you have dkms enabled? What is controlling your brightness keys? Is it DE controlled or are you mapping them to xbacklight or similar? If screen is black after resume, most likely the module isn't installed correctly. What is output for "uname -a" ? How did you install this module? Manual or through an AUR helper? What is the output during installation?

Thanks for the flag out of date. Updated sha1sum to match new mba6x_bl.c from upstream. pkgrel bumped up to 3.
