Backlight with Ubuntu 8.10 and Lenovo X300

A recent kernel upgrade broke the backlight control on my X300 (along with a lot of other laptops, according to what I find with Google). To fix it, I'm running the following every time I log in:

sudo xrandr --output LVDS --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL legacy

Flawless... Thanks for the tip. My X300 is now ... slightly better!
