OpenRazer is a community-led effort to support Razer peripherals on Linux.
USE flags for sys-apps/openrazer Drivers and user-space daemon to control Razer devices on GNU/Linux
emerge --ask sys-apps/openrazer
Correctly OpenRazer can act as a backed for following packages:
- sys-apps/razercommander - a GUI OpenRazer client application,
- sys-apps/polychromatic - most feature-fill GUI configuration tool, providing also a CLI interface and a system tray icon,
- sys-apps/razer-cli - most minimal, CLI-only OpenRazer client.
The kernel modules should be automatically loaded by Udev, but can also be loaded by using the "modules" system service.
Upstream provides a systemd user service which can be enabled by the users running systemd.
OpenRazer provides a kernel module as well as a client and server implementations. Currently all OpenRazer clients rely on that server called "openrazer-daemon". So, to make all GUI/TUI clients work correctly, first the "openrazer-daemon" has to be started. This can be done by either adding it to the desktop startup scripts, xinitrc script or manually starting from the command-line.
