Maclight - control your Mac's screen and keyboard light from linux
Maclight is both a command line utility and a haskell library for controlling your Mac's screen and keyboard backlights on Linux. Installation on Debian-esque systems is typically something like:
sudo apt-get install cabal-install cabal update git clone https://github.com/tych0/maclight cd maclight cabal install --only-dependencies sudo make install
maclight binary is installed suid because the files used to control the
lights are only accessable by root. However, the source is small, so hopefully
(:D) there are no local root vulns. Usage looks like:
maclight keyboard up maclight screen set=300 maclight keyboard down
