Please consider adding an option to override the udev rules directory.

See here for an example.

Is there a version where this problem doesn't occur? Because the program cannot be run without sudo otherwise. Thanks.

Actually, I'm not sure what's my issue. I thougt that was it, but after running

sed -i 's,--with-udev,--with-udev=/lib' $LIGHT_DIR/debian/rules
make deb
sudo apt install ../light_1.2_amd64.deb

EDIT1

The file /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness is still not having video as group ownership. Even when restarting my computer, it didn't help... :/

Possibly, I'm misunderstanding udev.

EDIT2

I found out. I had to use --with-udev=/lib/udev/rules.d. That makes sense. This is consistent with ./configure --help. I guess I was misled by this issue's title.

I've made a pull request. I mentionned that it fixes this issue in case that is indeed sufficient. Advise me if it is otherwise.
