armada-backlight - Adjust Compaq Armada backlight SYNOPSIS
armada-backlight [-h|--help] [[+-]value] DESCRIPTION
Values: None Prints the current brightness level to stdout. + Increases the brightness of the backlight. - Decreases the brightness of the backlight. value Sets the brightness of the backlight. Value must be between 0 and 8, inclusive. The Armada Backlight Controller is a program for controlling the brightness of the LCD backlight on Compaq Armada[1] laptops under Linux. It has been tested on an Armada M700 running. It is based on code by George Acher[2], which was written for the M300 and has been used on the E500. This package should also work on those machines, although that has not been tested by Nat Pryce, who put the modified package together. The program is divided into two parts: 1. A command-line program that is installed with privileges that allow it to control the backlight hardware (aka an "suid" program). 2. A GNOME panel applet that provides a convenient GUI to the command-line program. An alternative way of using the command-line program is to configure your X window manager to run it in response to key sequences such as Alt-F10 to make the screen brighter and Alt-Shift-F10 to make the screen dimmer (in Compaq Armada, the F10 key has a brightness icon on it). References: 1. 2. GNOME Panel Applet The Armada Backlight Controller applet is installed into the Utility category of the GNOME Applets menu. [menu.png] When added to the panel, the applet presents a scrollbar that can be used to interactively control the brightness of the backlight and also shows the current level numerically. The icon identifies the applet in the panel and can be used to access the applet menu using the right mouse button. [applet.png] OPTIONS

Config::Model::models::LCDd::MtxOrb - Configuration class LCDd::MtxOrb VERSION
version 2.021 DESCRIPTION
Configuration classes used by Config::Model generated from LCDd.conf Elements Device Select the output device to use Optional. Type uniline. upstream_default: '/dev/lcd'. Size Set the display size Optional. Type uniline. upstream_default: '20x4'. Type Set the display type Optional. Type enum. choice: 'lcd', 'lkd', 'vfd', 'vkd'. upstream_default: 'lcd'. Contrast Set the initial contrast NOTE: The driver will ignore this if the display is a vfd or vkd as they don't have this feature. Optional. Type uniline. upstream_default: '480'. hasAdjustableBacklight Some old displays do not have an adjustable backlight but only can switch the backlight on/off. If you experience randomly appearing block characters, try setting this to false. Optional. Type enum. choice: 'yes', 'no'. upstream_default: 'yes'. Brightness Set the initial brightness Optional. Type integer. upstream_default: '1000'. OffBrightness Set the initial off-brightness This value is used when the display is normally switched off in case LCDd is inactive. Optional. Type integer. upstream_default: '0'. Speed Set the communication speed Optional. Type enum. choice: '1200', '2400', '9600', '19200'. upstream_default: '19200'. KeyMap_A The following table translates from MtxOrb key letters to logical key names. By default no keys are mapped, meaning the keypad is not used at all.Optional. Type uniline. default: 'Left'. KeyMap_B Optional. Type uniline. default: 'Right'. KeyMap_C Optional. Type uniline. default: 'Up'. KeyMap_D Optional. Type uniline. default: 'Down'. KeyMap_E Optional. Type uniline. default: 'Enter'. KeyMap_F Optional. Type uniline. default: 'Escape'. keypad_test_mode See the [menu] section for an explanation of the key mappings You can find out which key of your display sends which character by setting keypad_test_mode to yes and running LCDd. LCDd will output all characters it receives. Afterwards you can modify the settings above and set keypad_set_mode to no again.Optional. Type uniline. default: 'no'. SEE ALSO
