KMacBacklight project is a kicker applet to adjust the backlight of an Apple iMac or MacBook Pro. You also can assign shortcuts.
I take absolutely no responsibility for any kind of harm caused to your Mac.
After unpacking with "tar xvfj" and changing to the directory with "cd kmacbacklight" the usual "./configure && make && sudo make install".
You might need the package "pciutils-dev" to compile backlight.c.
Afterwards you should be able to add the applet to your KDE panel.
- MacBook support. Can anyone with a MacBook please confirm that this [ http://desrt.mcmaster.ca/code/macbook-backlight/macbook-backlight.c ] backlight adjuster works and which backlight values you can use. I use values between 33 and 255 for the MacBook Pro backlight adjuster at the moment.
