Backligting on Keyboards under Linux

Recommended Posts

Just got a new CM Devastator II keyboard, No native Linux support for the back lighting, so the keyboard lights do not work with the "scroll lock" key like in windows. Never fear you can enable it from a terminal by typing "xset led 3" boom you have back lighting working now. Lazy mans tip.. While you have the terminal open type "touch xlights.sh" open the file with whatever you use to edit text add "xset led 3" save the shell script. Go to system settings , Then startup and shut down, select Autostart, then Add Script button on the right point it to the script you just made, then check create as symlink. Should autostart now. Enjoy
