Join us on our own very special Reddit: /r/Linuxers

Thanks to an open source project, you can now quite easily adjust the colouring on the fan of the AMD Wraith Prism RGB cooler.

Since AMD don't officially provide their software for adjusting RGB on Linux, we're once again left to the community to fill in the gaps. Thankfully someone has done this, enter CM-RGB. Once of those utilities that's not even remotely essential, but very much nice to have.

CM-RGB offers up quite a lot of options for tweaking colours, with a fun example script of displaying CPU utilization with the ring LED's like the example gif the developer provided below:

Check it out on GitHub if you're interested.

Now I need to figure out what I did with that micro cable to connect the CPU to USB. My thoughts at the time of install were "I have no way to control the lights so why would I use these things..."

Quotescript of displaying CPU utilization with the ring LED's

Now someone finally did something useful with RGB LEDs on a PC!

You should be able to control the lights in the BIOS. I can at least.

This is great! While I can mostly control the lights in the BIOS, I can't change the ring how I'd like.

This is what I hate - One can not just install application and use it. One needs some Java, some pip (whatever this is). Fuck it, I have other priorities.

There is no official support. Individuals have taken it upon themselves to try to fill the gaps that the manufacturers of the product have left for Linux users. The least you can do is be grateful for their efforts. If you don't like something, maybe you can contribute instead of complaining. Or maybe you should complain to the manufacturers who neglected to provide support to begin with.


Also...this application is for RGB lighting...which has kinda become synonymous with frivolous features. No one is expecting you to prioritize this over anything else.

I understand community thing, but I find this practice wrong, where One should have programming knowledge to use simple software - "his application is for RGB lighting...which has kinda become synonymous with frivolous features.". And attitude - be grateful for what is given - is wrong, I spent around 20 min, trying to install and use this soft with no results - basically, I should be grateful for something I can not use. I can not contribute - I am User Vulgaris, who really really hates MS, zero skills at coding.

I am an electrician, when I do something for someone, regardless of pay, I don't leave half done things - it is at least dangerous. Imagine, for example, that Your electrician left live open sockets for You to finish, or leaves mains cable for house disconnected, assuming, that anyone, who will live there will prepare cable ends and connect by themselves. Because it is easy, nothing complicated.
