You can edit the appropriate section in /etc/mce/mce.ini, but you would need to do this as root, and be VERY careful - messing up mce.ini can brick your device.

TrueJournals made the mcedit application for diablo, the best bet would be asking whether a version is planned for fremantle. I've not tried it out myself on one of the previous devices, but from what I can see you'd still need to write LED pattern strings yourself. It also looks like it's still quite an early test - he's numbered the version 0.0.7-1

I changed the notification light for MS and Calls o red, as I am always getting Mails (blue) and want to be able to distinct them.

Thanks again for the tip, codeMonkey.

How did you change it to red...would you mind posting this...as I have an N810 and the same issue. Would love to have it set for red for calls, blue for email, and green for IMs using Pidgin and the LED plugin.

As codeMonkey said, I edited /etc/mce/mce.ini. It is pretty much self explainatory, for the N900 you edit the lines 447 and 449, change 'b' for blue to 'r' for red:

Code:
PatternCommunicationCall=30;1;0;r;9d80400002ff03ff02ff03ff71080000;9d800000
PatternCommunicationSMS=30;1;0;r;9d80400002ff03ff02ff03ff71080000;9d800000
There are also several other controllers listed. Still I do not know, if this helps you with the N810 and Pidgin, probably not.

Best regards,
Corwin
