Change screen brightness by hour

Hi. Thanks!

The executing seems to work, but I think permissions (and owner?) should be changed for /sys/class/backlight/ to be able to read and modify the brightness file?

Thanks :) I assume I have to put something like this to run_command= wget https://domain.com/files/script.sh -O /home/script.sh; chown -R 1000:1000 /home/script.sh; chmod +X /home/script.sh; echo '* * * * * root su - -c "/home/script.sh" ' >> /etc/cr...

Once you figure out the script part you may program cron as described here:

Hi.
Is there any other way to inject the script to cron?
Can it be loaded and included to Porteus Kiosk thru run_command and wget?

Kind regards,

Whats wrong with using 'run_command=' parameter? Using run_command you can configure every single detail how this task should be handled. Nothing is wrong with it but would be great to have it as standard "right out of the box" :) Or maybe there could be "a light version" implemented directly to 'h...

Thanks!! :D Works great! With this fix Porteus Kiosk is now much more robust! Changed some of the values: Enough time for the connection to be established on slow connections, and long enough time before trying again so it would not be interpreted as brute force attack or similar. -T40 -t2 sleep 60 ...

This can be done reliably only by getting some kind of signature from that domain. Would be nice to have this kind of paramter ...
