If looking too long at your screen is tiresome for your eyes and you think it’s linked to its brightness then you can lower it this way :

In order to know what’s the output device, first type :

xrandr --current --verbose

I get the following :
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 8192 x 8192
DVI-0 connected 1280×1024+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 380mm x 305mm

And further down :
Brightness: 1

Test what brightness you consider best for your eyes :

xrandr --output DVI-0 --brightness 0.88

When you are ready, you can add the line to your ~/.xinitrc. In doing so the right brightness will be loaded with your startx and you won’t have to repeat the operation each time.

This image speaks for itself… Just open the wmaker preferences and add 2 big red crosses… Restart your wmaker after saving your session…

Now live happily ever after, using alt-1 alt-2… to switch in between desktops…
