I want to increase my trackpoint speed and sensitivity so I added the commands below to my /etc/rc.local file
#!/usr/bin/dash # Default rc.local for void; add your custom commands here. # echo -n 255 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/speed echo -n 255 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/sensitivity # This is run by runit in stage 2 before the services are executed # (see /etc/runit/2).
However, upon boot, before I’m prompted to login to my console, I see that the command fails with the following error message.
cannot create /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/sensitivity: Permission denied
I thought /etc/rc.local was run with administrative privileges, is it not?
