This article is a guide about installing TUXEDO's Linux drivers and Control Center on Gentoo Linux - software for vendor-specific TUXEDO hardware.


First enable these Kernel options[1] to make the compiling of app-laptop/tuxedo-keyboard and sys-power/tuxedo-cc-wmi packages possible.

root #emerge --ask app-laptop/tuxedo-keyboard

These modules should be automatically loaded when booting:[2]

FILE /etc/modules-load.d/tuxedo.confLoad custom modules at boot

To configure the backlighting of the laptop's keyboard, edit /etc/modprobe.d/tuxedo_keyboard.conf. For other configuration options, see the tuxedo-keyboard README.

FILE /etc/modprobe.d/tuxedo_keyboard.confStatic white backlighting
options tuxedo_keyboard mode=0 color_left=0xFFFFFF color_center=0xFFFFFF color_right=0xFFFFFF

It is also possible to configure the keyboard via the TUXEDO Control Center. But effects, e. g. “Wave”, are not configurable in the UI yet.

Before rebooting, add this service:

root #rc-update add tccd default

Control Center

TUXEDO Computers provides an application to control various hardware components. A binary package exists in the Gentoo tree.

root #emerge --ask app-laptop/tuxedo-control-center-bin
