Clevo PC70D Laptop Keyboard Backlight doesn't work

Hi

I am a Newbie with Garuda Linux and i found a solution for Ubuntu at here for the Instructions from the old version, but i don't know how to do it on Garuda!

I also found something in the Arch AUR, but i don't understand it.

Maybe someone have Time to help me, to get the Backlight working on my Laptop!?

Thanks light

so you don't know how install AUR package , whrite following commands on your terminal

# git clone [the package]
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/qperf.git

then

# cd [the package]
cd qperf
makepkg -si

Thx, i will try it with one of the AUR Package, but I'm not sure about which Versions i should try and also the dependencies, that's why my first thoughts was to take better the most up do date version of the original Site and build it for arch!?

I'd opt for this one, the latest comment includes also instructions to be followed in case your model is not listed.
