Typing Lightbar for 2015 Chromebook Pixel
This is a simple C program that will change your Pixel's lightbar to a random color each time you press a key. The color persists for less than a second before it returns to the default colors.
- Make sure your device is in dev mode. Take a look at this article if you need help setting that up.
- Enter the shell and navigate to the
cbPixelLightbar.cfile from this repository.
- You might need to re-mount your Pixel's drive without the
noexecflag. Follow the instructions located at this Stack Exchange page.
- Compile the program with gcc using this command:
gcc cbPixelLightbar.c -o cbPixelLightbar
- Run the program with
./cbPixelLightbar &if you want to have the process persist in the background.
