I have a problem with my Lenovo x230i Thinkpad. Everytime I login or power on the system, the backlight turns on and I have to use Fn + space manually to turn it off. Its a little irritating to do it everytime manually. So, I want to completely disable the backlight option but I am clueless about how to do it in Ubuntu 14.04. I checked the power manager and the keyboard options, but there is no such option to completely turn it off. Can anybody please suggest me a fix to this problem?
You should make a script wich would press those keys automatically after startup.
To do that you would need to create an empty document and write down the following:
#!/bin/bash xdotool key fn+space
Save it as
.sh ( i.e.
Keyboard Backlight Off.sh ) and move the resultant document into the
init directory, wich is the usual process starter. The exact name of such drectory may change, so search for something like:
/etc/rc1.d (the number after 'rc' may change)
I recommend you to try add it to the last option -->
/etc/rc.localas it's usually better to add your own scripts in there.
Hope it works and post the feedback.
