Over the summer, I migrated my desktop environment to i3, a tiling window manager. Switching to i3 was a challenge at first, since I had to replace many things that GNOME handled for me. One of these things was changing screen brightness.
xbacklight, the standard way of changing backlight brightness on laptops, doesn’t work on my hardware.
Recently, I discovered brightlight, a tool that changes backlight brightness. I decided to try it, and it worked with root privileges. However, I found there was no RPM package in Fedora for brightlight. I decided this was the right time to try creating a package in Fedora and learn how to create an RPM.
In this article, I’ll cover and share how I…
- Created the RPM SPEC file
- Built the package in Koji and Copr
- Worked through an issue with debug package
- Submitted the package to Fedora package collection
