    change backlit color

    Hi, so I recently bought a laptop,., and there it says I can change the backlit color, but the only thing I can do is turn it on (being blue the color) and off,., but I can't change the color. I have tried clicking fn + / ,., but no luck. The only way I could change the color was installing this: http://sourceforge.net/p/clevo-wmi/c...f2310605/tree/

    but I think if system76 sells it saying that you can change the color of the keyboard, then maybe im missing a driver or something.. any ideaS? =/

    thanks a lot!

    Which "/" key are you pressing? It needs to be the one on the numberpad, specifically.

    Also, you'll want to use Fn, not Alt.

    That's actually it. There's nothing else that can affect the backlights, since they're tied into the BIOS.

    What happens if you hit Fn+* (Next to the / key)

    fn + * turns off and on the lights,., and with fn + + and fn + - I am able to change the brightness
