is it possible to set the screen brightness in a config file, so it will use that level after a restart?
also is it possible to make antix use the keys on the laptop keyboard that increase/decrease brightness? there is a blue FN key and when pressed in combination with the left arrow, it should decrease the screen brightness.
I know I can do that by running the control center and then the special tool for brightness.
and that does not work. there are no examples of how to refer to the blue Fn key and I am not sure if KP_Left is the correct way to refer to my left arrow key. this is a laptop without a number pad on the right.
You should be able to use the command ‘xev’ to find the key map names.
Edit: Being a function key they may not show up. If they do not I am not 100% certain on how to make them work. You may be able to change the behaviour in the bios. It may also be made to work by adding / modifying acpi settings via the grub boot line (such as acpi_osi= ).
