My laptop has a light under the keyboard. I doubt the keyboard light consumes a lot of power, but when it comes to laptops and batteries, every little bit helps. So I prefer it to default to being off.
I found this command that I can run at the command line which switches off the keyboard light:
echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/asus::kbd_backlight/brightness
Which is nice, but I'd like to have it in my list of startup programs so that I don't have to remember to turn off the keyboard light, which I often forget to do.
However, it doesn't seem to work if I put it in the startup applications, and I suspect that it could be because part of it requires
sudo, so it probably doesn't have the right persmissions at startup time. Or maybe it's another issue. In any case, it doesn't run at startup.
Is there a way I can get this command to run at startup?
