If you are getting an error about easy_install not being recognised or found, you can use the following command to install it: sudo apt-get -y install python-dev python-setuptools The best way to diagnose problems with the LedBorg is to try and control it manually. If you have followed the install page you should be able to do this quite easily. First open a terminal and load python...

This example takes the getting started - lesson 5 script and adds a new dimension to the colour changing, brightness. The new script pulses the LedBorg brightness between hue changes, giving a more complex colour sequence which shows how flexible LedBorg can be. You can download the code directly to your Raspberry Pi using: cd ~/ledborg wget -O LedPulse.py

We want to know how hot our Raspberry Pis are getting when they do their thing, and what better way then with LEDs? This is an updated version of the old BakedPi script which uses the new driver free LedBorg code. As a side benefit the extended colour range allows us to see what the temperature is like more clearly over larger ranges. The colour displayed starts at minimum temperature...

This example uses the standard GTK colour selection dialog to provide a user-friendly control for selecting LedBorg colours. The colour of the LedBorg changes as you change the selection on the dialog, as a bonus most of the GUI code is done for us in this example ^_^ You can download the code directly to your Raspberry Pi using: cd ~/ledborg...

We think the CheerLights project is a great idea and that we needed to update our example to work with the new LedBorg software. For those who do not know, CheerLights allows any light or LED connected to the system to display synchronised colours. Current CheerLights colour: The current colour may be set by tweeting to @cheerlights or using the #cheerlights...
