frostyx / light


Light is a program to control backlight controllers under GNU/Linux, it is the successor of lightscript, which was a bash script with the same purpose, and tries to maintain the same functionality.


  • Works excellent where other software have been proven unusable or problematic, thanks to how it operates internally and the fact that it does not rely on X.
  • Can automatically figure out the best controller to use, making full use of underlying hardware.
  • Possibility to set a minimum brightness value, as some controllers set the screen to be pitch black at a va─║ue of 0 (or higher).
