    Dose my explanation make sens?

    Big problem. I am not even using 0.3 anymore. I have to use the 0.2 version.
    Im not sure I follow, but you actually might be talking about a feature I put in. The "Color Used panels" can be used in 2 different ways. Right clicking on a color which choose that color as the currently selected color. Left clicking on the button will make every instance of that color change to the selected one. This allows for quick color swapping.

    If this is not your problem, can you explain a little more? Can you maybe make a screenshot or two?

    OWE Okay.

    Thanks, ya I was just left clicking everything. Ok, so now I am doing the whole right click to select and left click to change and it is all working as I want it to now.

    Re: AlienFX Lite (Linux + Windows)

    I have to say: superb application
    Who would have imagined that linux will receive the best of AlienFX.

    Everything seems to work quite nicely, however:
    When I should down my computer (and leave it for a while, like 1 day) and when I plug in the power, no lights turn on. When I turn it on, all zones start flashing. It seems that there is something not right with saving config to EEPROM.

    I have Alienware M17x.

    Well, that doesnt sound right. So there are 2 possible solutions for it. Either, I disable saving to EEPROM, which would fix that issue, but then you would have to reset the lights everytime you boot into the OS, or you can help me find the issue. I dont have an M17X, so the following would have to be done:

    On Windows:
    Install USBSniff: http://www.pcausa.com/Utilities/UsbSnoop/
    Select the device with Vendor Id 187c and PId 512
    Then install the sniffer there.
    Restart the laptop.
    Now press Fn + F11 to turn of the lights
    Now start USBSniff make sure to pause->close->delete the logfile
    Resume logging
    Press Fn+F11
    wait a wee bit until the light turn up
    press on pause->close
    and post the logfile here. That way I can exactly see what Command Centre sends on the M17X and fix stuff

    Re: AlienFX Lite (Linux + Windows)

    I did what you said.
    I have created two logs:
    UsbSnoop0.log - all zones have same color
    UsbSnoop1.log - keyboard 4/numpad is morphing, the rest - have single color

    I've created 2 instead of 1 log, because I've noticed that when I set all zones to morph, after complete shutdown and when powering laptop on everything starts flashing.
    In contrast to this, when setting all colors to "plain color" in AlienFX lite, usually after restart the theme is either:
    a) retained
    b) everything is just black

    So it seems that problems are a bit more related to morphing + saving.
    Feel free to ask anything else that might help resolve this issue.

    Any chance we could get this for the new m11x? I have one and am willing to help.

    BTW, excellent work!

    Thanks, just a question, which command centre do you have installed? Was it the A05?

    I think that it is A05.
    I've updated all software from dell's site a while ago.

    AO5 is buggy. You would have to revert to AO3 or AO4. It causes weird behaviour most of the time.
