[SOLVED]dwm config.h some functions not working

Hi all, I have an issue where some (or most) of the keyboard functions (is this the right term?) I define in config.h don't seem to be working, which I imagine stems from the fact that maybe I don't actually know what is going on in config.h....

here is config.h

};

The keys alt+F[11,12] work as expected, but for the screen/keyboard brightness, I have been unable to get them to work. Can anyone push me in the right direction?

Re: [SOLVED]dwm config.h some functions not working

static const char *kb_light_down[]   = { "/usr/bin/local/kb-light.py", "-",       "1",              NULL };

Is kb-light.py really in /usr/bin/local? Or is it in /usr/local/bin?
