xgamma & xbacklight

Back to using XFCE. My experience with KDE was a nice run, but I miss the simplicity of GTK :) Anyway, it seems that the XFCE panel brightness plugin does not remember the settings after log off. I boot to runlevel 3 and therefore I put the following in ~/.xinitrc:

#  xinitrc.xfce - modified to work around xfce4session bug
#                 https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8841

xgamma -gamma 0.4
xbacklight -set 70

Now gamma is set to 40% and backlight to 70%. I just like dark.
