Enable the RGB effects on the backlit keyboard of Lenovo Legion gaming laptops 5 and 5 Pro using this simple and straightforward app
What’s new in L5P-Keyboard-RGB 0.9.0 Pre-release:
- Main changes:
- Added CLI support
- Added support for the Legion 5 2020
Not only do the latest Lenovo Legion gaming laptops come with backlit keyboard, but the TrueStrike technology also boasts an easy design that may be suitable for typing. Unfortunately, as many Legion users noticed, the keyboard comes by default with white light that highlights the buttons. This is a bit surprising, considering that most gaming laptops out there show off with the RGB lighting on the keyboard.
L5P-Keyboard-RGB is a tiny tool designed for the latest Lenovo Legion laptops and that allows users to control the lighting of the 4 zone keyboard. It is important to note that since this is not official Lenovo software, the program is used at their own risk. In addition, the app has been tested with the 2021 Legion 5 and Legion 5 Pro models and does not currently work with the Legion 7(i) model. While it may work with other models, users are advised that this can also cause crashes or other problems.
As far as the RGB effects go, the application comes with several stock effects, including left and right wave, smooth, static and breathe. Moreover, it includes a few custom effects, the most noteworthy being the smooth wave and swipe, which can also be integrated into the first one.
