Light is a program to control backlight controllers under GNU/Linux,
it is the successor of lightscript, which was a bash script
with the same purpose, and tries to maintain the same functionality.
- Works excellent where other software have been proven unusable
or problematic, thanks to how it operates internally
and the fact that it does not rely on X.
- Can automatically figure out the best controller to use,
making full use of underlying hardware.
- Possibility to set a minimum brightness value, as some controllers
set the screen to be pitch black at a value of 0 (or higher).
