I'm not seeing some of the options that you suggested above in
In my LCDd.conf file the driver section looks like the following:
# The following drivers are supported:
# bayrad, CFontz, CFontz633, CFontzPacket, curses, CwLnx, ea65,
# EyeboxOne, g15, glcdlib, glk, hd44780, icp_a106, imon, IOWarrior,
# irman, joy, lb216, lcdm001, lcterm, lirc, MD8800, ms6931, mtc_s16209x,
# MtxOrb, NoritakeVFD, picolcd, pyramid, sed1330, sed1520, serialPOS,
# serialVFD, sli, stv5730, svga, t6963, text, tyan, ula200, xosd
Also, I see backlight=yes/no not 0/1 are we looking at the same versions?
