Current version: 0.5.2

General info

Ledcontrol is a program that allows you to show different information on the normally-unused LEDs on your keyboard. You can configure it to show virtually any true/false condition accessible or indicate an arbitrary number. The monitoring is by default done by shell scripts to allow for maximal configurability. Included are several useful scripts.

Features include:

Ledcontrol works both in X and on a text console. I have tested it only on Linux with a i386-architecture, but it may work also on other similar systems.

Ledcontrol is distributed under the GNU General Public License.

Ledcontrol is included in at least Debian (package names ledcontrol and ledcontrol-gtk), possibly also in other Linux distributions.

Ledcontrol requires GLIB version 1.2.0 or higher (GLIB 2 may not work - untested). The GTK+ frontend requires at least GTK+ 1.2.0.
