Is there a way to get pbbuttonsd to remember the brightness of the LCD the next time you reboot? Whenever I start my iBook, the screen brightness is maxed out and I prefer it rather dim. (I also had this problem on my pismo powerbook, but never got around to looking into it.)

Isn't this how you configure it to start with the brightness minimised?

Code:

# [MODULE DISPLAY]
Brightness              = 1      ; initial brightness level
BrightnessupKey         = 225
BrightnessdownKey       = 224
dev_framebuffer         = "/dev/fb0"
UseFBBlank              = yes
FadingSpeed             = 3       ; dimming smoothly
DimFullyDark            = no

Solved by reading the man pages.
I'm using aronchi's pbbuttonsd.conf which is getting a little out of date.

The pbbuttonsd.conf man page says that
you should put
Code:

LCD_Brightness              = 1


not
Code:

Brightness              = 1


in the file to set the default brightness to minimum. (I think max. is 12)
