Keyboard Backlight control for macbooks.

Keyboard-backlight settings for Linux. Now tested on Lubuntu on:

  • Macbook Pro, Retina, 13 inch, Early 2015
  • MacBook Pro, Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015

Use

keyboard-backlight --up keyboard-backlight --down

Notes

This works on my macbook, it may cause yours to say mean things and slam shut on your fingers.

I also had to

chown root:root keyboard-backlight chmod u+s keyboard-backlight

in order for the command to have to rights to change the backlight setting.

In Lubuntu, I've assigned keyboard shortcuts in Configuration Center|Shortcut Keys:

  • XF86kbdBrightnessDown set to keyboard-backlight --down
  • XF86kbdBrightnessUp set to keyboard-backlight --up
