Sound and brightness on a Macbook

https://bbs.archlinux.org – For the keys, have you tried adding them into your WMs key configuration?Set them to execute xbacklight with the '-inc <percent>' and '-dec <percent>' options respectively.Same for the volume keys, but get them to call 'amixer' like so: amixer -q -c 0 sset Master 5dB+ // increase master volume by 5 decibels amixer -q -c 0 sset Master 5dB- // decrease master volume by 5 decibelsI'm not sure what you mean by OSX showing it's volume/brightness overlay, so i can't help you there.For battery life try acpi from the repos.EDIT: removed (HowTos)
