New version of Kitt leds.

Here is the alternate version of the light show resembling Kitt front end demo.




First you need to compile lptout.c
$ gcc lptout.c -o lptout

Create the lightshow.sh shell file

$ editor lightshow.sh

Make it executable with:

$ chmod +x lightshow.sh

then you can invoke shell file with with an argument for the speed of the lights. The larger the number, the slower it runs,


$ sudo /lightshow.sh .2

You can also use the light show emulator

$ ./testshow  .5
