I've just flashed 3.5.3 onto my 860 and I'm now in the dark in terms of backlight. Nothing seems to allow me to turn up the brightness. Can this be done from the command line? The light/screen applets seem to do nothing.
Any help/advice greatfully received.

Download the bl script from here:

http://people.bath.ac.uk/enpsgp/Zaurus/bl/...is-extension.sh

Rename it to bl and place it in /usr/bin

Then ipaq-sleep will work correctly (though you'll need to edit the ipaq-sleep.conf file to set the max brightness to 255), and you can use it manually like so:

bl 255 (max brightness)
bl 1 (min brightness)
bl on (screen on)
bl off (screen off)

and so on,
