Change Razer Peripheral Color and Pattern
Razer is a company which makes computers and computer peripherals for gaming. Some of their peripherals, dubbed "Chroma" have special lights. Razer provide an application on Windows and MacOS for changing the colors and lighting patterns, but not for GNU/Linux. Fortunately, a fellow by the name of Terry Cain has solved this problem by creating OpenRazer, which is a daemon and a driver for Razer peripherals. Polychromatic utilizes OpenRazer and serves as a graphical front-end for it. Strangely enough, this program actually provides more functionality than the one from the manufacturer. For example, it connects much more reliably to the keyboard and it comes with a special panel applet for changing effects and colors. Plus, it doesn't have that annoying insistence on saving your configuration to the server before it'll let you change your keyboard configuration.
