Im having trouble with my toshiba satellite pro a60 laptop. I would like to use the hotkey and be able to change the brightness of my screen. Any ideas what software I would need?

Thanks.

assuming this is the same as my tecra m2 you need to load the toshiba_acpi module, then you will have a /proc/acpi/toshiba/lcd file or similar, which you can echo a value of 0 to 7 to to change it. you can then also use fnfxd to enable the buttons to communicate with the proc interface
