    Exclamation Macbook 3.1 brightness controller problem


    I had a problem with brightness controlling in my MacBook machine (2.20GHz santa rosa)
    I can controlling sound volume by hotkey (FN + F10, F11 and F12 as Leopard)

    But the hotkey that controlling LCD brightness is not working at all (FN + F1 and F2, also without FN)

    And I remember it was worked in RC1 version without any updates.

    openSUSE 11.0

    Is there any idea to make it works?

    Sorry for any mistakes, English is not my mother language..

    Hi I have a question for you. I also have macbook pro 2.2 santa rosa. Can you check if the keyboard backlight brightness controlling key work (F8,9,10 or FN+F...). I installed suse11 from the live cd with kde4 and I am getting stuff like that:

    pommed[8003]: pommed v1.15 ($Rev: 434 $) Apple laptops hotkeys handler
    pommed[8003]: Copyright (C) 2006-2008 Julien BLACHE <>
    pommed[8003]: SMBIOS machine check: running on a MacBookPro3,1
    pommed[8003]: Could not open /sys/class/leds/smc:kbd_backlight/brightness: No such file or directory
    pommed[8004]: beep: thread init failed, disabling

    in the system messages. Needless to say the keyboard backlight doesn't work.
