I'm puzzled about this still. I've found nothing in the docs about changing the brightness of the backlight, is it actually possible?

I ask as it's very useful to turn it down to save battery, but then back up when you need to use it in brightish light.

also, is there a way to rotate the screen without changing xorg.conf?

Actually the wsconsctl display.brightness increment values give 20% on 1 step values...

i.e. at
60% wsconsctl display.brightness+=1 goes to 80%
40% wsconsctl display.brightness-=1 goes to 20%

These are the values you need to keybind

btw: I have only tried this with xfce4 using the Window Manager command mapping and had to use a Ctrl+3, Ctrl+4 rather than Fn+3, Fn+4 which the Window Manager ignored.. possibly due to the fact that this is a Chording Key for a mouse click? Not sure.
