Do you get an error from xset or does nothing happen? Also what distro? If it doesn't work I would guess ACPI is not compiled into the kernel. As a diagnostic, please post the output of xset q. Thanks.

We actually managed to get it working using --root, which I'd somehow overlooked. I'll mark this as the answer, thanks.

PLEASE make sure that the ~/.ssh directory has 700 permissions! Otherwise your security is worthless.

Why would I want to install a package manually if I could just use pacman? Nevertheless, I understand your comment and will amend the question.

The readme isn't too clear on what the database actually is.
