8. Playing with the buttons

8.1 Pbbuttonsd

The special keys are handled by pbbuttonsd, a daemon.

You should probably edit /etc/pbbuttonsd.conf in order to uncomment the Brightness initial level. The example show below shows how I did this:

Brightness              = 6     ; initial brightness level

8.2 Pbbuttons Clients


I installed this package and set it to load when I login, it raises a nice gtk window whenever I press one of the keys. Even so I still like the transparent Mac OS X equivalent.


It is a tabbed window where you can change all the different settings.
