hi, i've latest installed and it wroks great.

the only problem is that my screen dims at boot and i can "raise" brightness only after login.

@raghu13: Hmm... this package is the original from mactel. I recommend you submit a nvidia-bl-guilhermizin (or something like that) PKGBUILD.
@teme: please update the package.

Don't use the source provided here. It is outdated. For latest ones, use (the attachments on the first post are updated regularly) and don't link to the ppa repository -- it is nearly impossible to find the source repository there.

to anyone who is using a samsung laptop.
if your backlight is very dim and you cant set the brightness higher,
make a new conf file in your /etc/modprobe.d/ and have copy this

options nvidia_bl max_level=0x1ffff shift=11

I'm using 256.53 version. The 260.12.x is not working here on my geforce 330m.
