Last weekend while working on Ivette, I needed to be able to control the backlighting on the screen so I spent Saturday afternoon to very late in the night with a bottle of merlot coding away on a script to enable me to do this from the shell. I implemented it with the help of the somewhat inaccurate but still excellent official documentation on the subject.
I released the results of this effort onto my github account. There are still a few bugs and some minor features missing but the script works really well on my device.
To checkout this script just go to it’s github page at https://github.com/Nimdraug/lcdcontrol
Any help with testing the script on other devices or general bug testing would be highly appreciated.
