awesome-brightness

Description

Brightness (backlight) indicator+control widget for awesome window manager based on xbacklight.

Installation

Drop the script into your awesome config folder. Suggestion:

cd ~/.config/awesome
git clone https://github.com/deficient/brightness.git

sudo pacman -S xorg-xbacklight

Usage

In your ~/.config/awesome/rc.lua:

-- load the module
local brightness = require("brightness")


-- instanciate the control
brightness_ctrl = brightness({})


-- add the widget to your wibox
right_layout:add(brightness_ctrl.widget)

Troubleshooting

If you get errors on startup, try executing the following in a terminal:

xbacklight -get

If you get the error "No outputs have backlight property", make sure you have installed an appropriate display driver, e.g. for intel cards:

sudo pacman -S xf86-video-intel

You may need to restart afterwards.
