Lightctl is (yet another) tool to control display backlight. Unlike every other tool I've found, it actually does "smooth" adjustments, rather than instantaneous ones. That is, the light_intensity over time curve is a continuous one.


This is still under development and possible has subtle bugs. So far, this project has served more for my own experimentation than anything else. You're free to use it though, it does work.

Please report any bugs in the issue tracker.
