Disco Lights - or single colour - or whatever you want under Windows

Linux - not so easy to do with the Logitech G910

I want a keyboard with a single colour backlight (preferably white) that is just ON all  the time so doesn't require ANY drivers/software (like backlit laptop keyboards) .. that shouldn't friggin be that hard to find in 2019 should it?, and yet.....

>:(

Seems the whole ferking world has gone fairy/disco lights (and hence platform specific) .. Aaaargh!!! ::)



[EDIT]

Hmm, maybe the Logitech K800

Problem with Logitech is the lack of Linux Support

All the Programs I found had limited success in setting the colours

Even on my Logitech G213 as well

Regards Zeb...

EDIT:  good news for me is that the "g810-led" program now works :)

K800 shouldn't AFAIK require any software/drivers so should be OS agnostic.

it's a single colour (white) backlight .. not RGB.

[EDIT]

Sure I'd need something for the unifying receiver under Linux (if I also wanna use a Logitech mouse with the same dongle), but that's definitely doable because I'm using a unifying receiver on a Linux box already.

This one definitely works with Linux but at 220 it's pricey  :o

Not interested in RGB, nor do I really need mechanical switches.

The K800 will do the job unless I can find sommat better.



BTW, that's not 'pricey' as much as 'F*CK ME, HOW MUCH? :o'

Although really I'd prefer wired to wireless, so still looking :(

[EDIT]

Maybe the Silver version of this
https://www.logitechg.com/en-gb/products/gaming-keyboards/g413-mechanical-gaming-keyboard.html#920-008308

Really I'd prefer the all black 'carbon' version, but with white instead of red backlight

 :o me too, flipping heck. I picked up for twenty quid USB Lenovo mouse and keyboard lovely to type with, the mouse comes with a weight in the front stopping it from wobbling over the screen. Plus you get the added bonus of Function keys on the keyboard, whether o not it glows in the dark I have no idea, for an extra 200.00 quid I want it to talk to me and ask me how my day has been, put the kettle on and make me a nice cuppa coffee, wake me up in time to go to bed, like my missus does when I've accidentally on purpose fallen asleep in front of some God forsaken film that she picked up for 50p. Many a evening I'll get nudged in the the side of my ribs, by her bony elbow, with her saying
"Oi wake up it's time to go to bed?" I would not want this keyboard to do that, as it'll end up smashed up all over the floor. How can they justify such a price? It's beyond my logic.  ;D

Here is a link to Logitech G513 RGB Keyboard.  ;D

It's spillage resistant too, so it won't fry if you spill a cuppa over it.

I don't really want RGB .. just a white backlight that doesn't require software to work.

It seems my problem is that manufacturers have decided we all want/need RGB Christmas fairy/disco lighting ::)

I want to be able to see my keyboard in low light TO AID TYPING, not for it to be a room lighting feature that will distract.
(I don't want it to require software .. that probably doesn't exist for Linux anyway .. to enable/control the lighting)

Seems it's simple to get something complex, but complex to get something simple.

You would think for the price of it, it would come with a switch to pick out the color you want and be set as default. I totally agree with the RGB though too much gimmick. It's because of those LED's that bump the price. All this tech and not a keyboard to do the simplest of tasks, whatever happened to luminous paint? I still own a pair of socks from the eighties that glow in the dark, without all this tech just the paint they were soaked in, no need to soak them in day light or under a light bulb for hours to heat them up to become luminous either. Everyone knew where I was, as not just the socks glowing, but I looked like a weird Ready Brek kid with a halo round my body as I walked down the street. Oh those were the days.  :D

Hmm, thanks Fritz74 .. I'll see if I can find out more about that :)

Should work fine, just dunno it the backlight requires software (though I doubt it).

Cheers Zeb

Don't really care about the extra key(s) as long as the backlight works .. and...

Full SteelSeries Engine support on Windows & OSX. Linux support is limited to basic HID Keyboard, Windows Key toggling, and illumination brightness control.

Not to mention, at 30 it might just be worth the risk anyway .. if it's not what I'm after, in never hurts to have an emergency spare.

Not sure how I'd get on with that MASSIVE spacebar though .. I'd be happier if that was normal size
