blinkd — Blinks keyboard LEDs for various purposes.
blinkd [-c] [--capslockled] [-f t] [--off-time=t] [-h] [--help] [-n] [--numlockled] [-o t] [--on-time=t] [-p t] [--pause=t] [-r] [--no-reopen] [-s] [--scrolllockled] [-t n] [--tcp-port=n] [-v] [--version]
The programs blink(1) and blinkd(8) help you to count or to monitor things like incoming calls on your voice box or incoming faxes. E.g. they blink Scroll-Lock LED for incoming voice calls and Num-Lock LED for incoming faxes. Normally, all three LEDs (Num-Lock, Caps-Lock, and Scroll-Lock) are handled. The blink client will ask the blinkd server to blink the specified LED with the given rate.
Handle the Caps-Lock LED. If none of the three LEDs is specified, the default is to handle all of them.
Set the off blink time to the value t. The unit is one tenth of a second.
Gives a short help on the command line options and exit.
Handle the Num-Lock LED. If none of the three LEDs is specified, the default is to handle all of them.
Set the on blink time to the value t. The unit is one tenth of a second.
Set the pause time between blinking to the value t. The unit is one tenth of a second.
Don't allow blinkd to close and re-open /dev/console all the time. This is to prevent disk activity, but may lead to inaccuracy when switching between virtual consoles.
Handle the Scroll-Lock LED. If none of the three LEDs is specified, the default is to handle all of them.
Use the tcp port n.
Give a short version information and exit.
/etc/init.d/blinkd starts and stops the blinkd daemon. All options have to be set in /etc/default/blinkd.
