Hi there, I'm not sure if this will be of help... I have an older model G4 ibook (with a G3 proc) which does not have the lighted keyboard feature... check to make sure you have event interface enabled (the EVDEV module) in your kernel. Also enable APM emulation or something like that under the new Mac drivers menu. I've also noticed that the pbbuttonsd.conf default kbd light value is 0, maybe that needs a different value? Have you tried changing the light sensor threshold values as well? also running pbbcmds? any luck with that? I dunno...hope this was somewhat helpful... best, alden -- gentoo-ppc-user@g.o mailing list
