OpenRazer is a community-led effort to support Razer peripherals on Linux.

Installation

USE flags

USE flags for sys-apps/openrazer Drivers and user-space daemon to control Razer devices on GNU/Linux

client Build the OpenRazer daemon client
daemon Build the OpenRazer daemon service
dist-kernel Enable subslot rebuilds on Distribution Kernel upgrades
test Enable dependencies and/or preparations necessary to run tests (usually controlled by FEATURES=test but can be toggled independently)

Emerge

root #emerge --ask sys-apps/openrazer

Additional software

Correctly OpenRazer can act as a backed for following packages:

Configuration

Kernel modules

The kernel modules should be automatically loaded by Udev, but can also be loaded by using the "modules" system service.

Service

systemd

Upstream provides a systemd user service which can be enabled by the users running systemd.

Usages

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.

Removal

Unmerge

root #emerge --ask --depclean --verbose sys-apps/openrazer
