@dalias @marcan @Alicealysia that doesn't provide desktops with the control they need for the experience users want. backlight GUI button off must turn backlight off immediately, some of them even have multiple dim settings.
I personally don't want to use a gui to do any of that, and I think asking for a user space mediator will actually just result in something _much worse_ like requiring dbus calls to systemd.
@dalias @marcan @Alicealysia how would that work? Udev querying desktop specific settings sounds much worse to me. It may depend on who is currently logged and of they're session is on current VT, etc. Unless you're arguing that desktop shouldn't control these things at all, which I'd agree with, but most people don't, and we have to love with that somehow.
I do https://kraud.cloud and other small business with net positive intentions.
