sonypi command failed at drivers/char/sonypi.c : sonypi_call2 (line 201)
sonypi command failed at drivers/char/sonypi.c : sonypi_call2 (line 203)
sonypi command failed at drivers/char/sonypi.c : sonypi_call1 (line 191)
sonypi: Sony Programmable I/O Controller Driver v1.23.
sonypi: detected type2 model, verbose = 0, fnkeyinit = off, camera = off, compat = off, mask = 0xffffffff, useinput = on, acpi = on
sonypi: enabled at irq=11, port1=0x1080, port2=0x1084

can it works for you?

if we must set the mknod minar and major personally, I will add a config dialog to support this.

If this tool can not works, can you give me some idea?

I hope we can let this tool work on any VAIO Laptop

maybe there should be a right-click menue?

could you also implement a powermanagement -menue? if plugged in brightness at 100% if not brightness at a customized value - for example

good suggestion, I will add the right cliked menu to exti this program.

and add detection of power.

to set the brightness to 100 is not a good idea, it is too bright.

I plan to change the system tray icon to indicate that power line had been pluged.

if the laptop use bat, I will show the remaining of bat.

/dev/sonypi: Kein passendes Gerät gefunden
ioctl: Ungültiger Dateideskriptor

mknod /dev/sonypi c 10 250

I am sorry that i can not add any comment, I use Sony VAIO PCG-V505GCP.
It works.

may be the driver can not drive your device, if you find what the problem is, please tell me.

I hope this tool can work on your laptop

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
