Utility to control RGB on AMD Wraith Prism

Project description

Control your Wraith Prism RGB on Linux, Mac OS and Windows


cm-rgb-monitor showing realtime cpu utilization.


Make sure you have dev libraries for hidapi.

sudo apt-get install python-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libudev-dev
Other distros

It's possible you already have what it takes to install pip package so try that. If you have any problems regarding hidapi installation see: Your issue may already have a solution there.

If you still have a problem please create an issue :)


Now you can install pip package.

pip install cm-rgb


Script must have access to USB device to function properly. It would be wise not to run this as root.

It's now possible to add udev rule by running:

cm-rgb-cli add-udev-rule

It may be required to reload udev for changes to take effect. Now you should be able to run cm-rgb-cli without sudo.


Included there is a sample script that allows for displaying cpu utilization with ring LED's.

cm-rgb-monitor --cpu-color=#FFA500 --bg-color=#00FFFF

Example of CLI usage

cm-rgb-cli set logo --mode=breathe --color=#00ff00 --speed=3 --brightness=5 fan --mode=breathe --color=#0000ff --speed=4 --brightness=1 ring --mode=swirl --color=#ff0000 --speed=1 --brightness=1

In order to make settings persistent append save

cm-rgb-cli set logo --mode=breathe --color=#00ff00 --speed=3 --brightness=5 fan --mode=breathe --color=#0000ff --speed=4 --brightness=1 ring --mode=swirl --color=#ff0000 --speed=1 –brightness=1 save

You can also restore previously saved settings by running

cm-rgb-cli restore

If LED lights disgust you, use this to turn them off.

cm-rgb-cli set logo --mode=off save

Check help for details on each command

cm-rgb-cli set logo --help

Much more flexibility is achievable by using the library directly instead of CLI. All of the 15 LED’s on the ring are available to mess with.
