@Espen11 Does it work with kernel 3.0. I don't want to mess with the dependencies unless it works perfectly with the new kernel.

The dependencies has to be changed to be compatible with the new linux 3.x file-naming.

i just did some research. And my guess is - that as raguj13 suggested - the version of guillaumezin is the only activly maintained version. Atleast the scaling works better for me. The PKG is available here:

I think the MacBook 7,1 entry in nvidia_bl.c should be apple_quirks instead of apple_quirks_320m.

thanks =)

There should be a file "/sys/class/backlight/[nvidia?]/brightness". You can echo some value to that file and your display brightness should change.

e.g. as root: "echo 200 > /sys/class/backlight/*/brightness"

if that works, you can put this line in your rc.local or use laptopmode-utils.

Cheers Ulf

hi, i've latest installed and it wroks great.

the only problem is that my screen dims at boot and i can "raise" brightness only after login.

is there a way to set initial brightness to a satisfactory level?

@raghu13: Hmm... this package is the original from mactel. I recommend you submit a nvidia-bl-guilhermizin (or something like that) PKGBUILD.
@teme: please update the package.

Don't use the source provided here. It is outdated. For latest ones, use (the attachments on the first post are updated regularly) and don't link to the ppa repository -- it is nearly impossible to find the source repository there.
