Description Brian Evans Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2017-04-25 14:31:41 UTC
The package sys-power/acpilight provides an xbacklight command which is compatible with (and extends) x11-apps/xbacklight but uses the system's ACPI to control the display.

Please consider adding it as an alternative in the dependencies.
