Projects / KLeds


KLeds is a tool intended for keyboards without LEDs (lights). After starting it docks to the KDE Panel and shows the current state of the keyboard lights. It is useful for keyboards like the Logitech Cordless Desktop or similar which have no NumLock, CapsLock, or ScrollLock lights. It only works if X is using the XKB keyboard extension. It is aware of the special keys some keyboards have, so that any command can be mapped to one of those keys.

            problems with X4 and KDE2.2.1
            Though I have tested kleds-0.5.1 on a variety of
            different systems, it seems some users have problems
            with it.
            If you use X4 and KDE 2.2.1 it may happen that
            the LED are not updated or updated with a delay.
            It might be a problem with the focus of your windows
            and the KDE taskbar.
            There will be a new branch if this is fixed.
