README

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

The 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
