Like this?

# acpi_listen
video/brightnessdown BRTDN 00000087 00000000
video/brightnessup BRTUP 00000086 00000000
video/brightnessdown BRTDN 00000087 00000000

Yeah, that didn't work *but* manually writing to both:

/sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

and

/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness

works.

The ranges are different, though:

intel_backlight/actual_brightness:1000
intel_backlight/bl_power:0
intel_backlight/brightness:1000
intel_backlight/max_brightness:4437
intel_backlight/type:raw

acpi_video0/actual_brightness:41
acpi_video0/bl_power:0
acpi_video0/brightness:41
acpi_video0/max_brightness:100
acpi_video0/type:firmware

I guess I need to write me a dirty script for now ... :-)

Thanks guys.
