Thanks alot for this. I got my keyboard backlight working now, although I had to change the patch abit, as in my laptop the correct identification was something else than "P95xER". This can be found out with dmidecode utility, and the correct identification was in Handle 0x0001 for me (System Information), not 0x0002 (Base Board Information).

At this point, I think I should base the packages on git revisions, because versions / tags were not updated since quite a long time. I'll probably take the last master + a patch for your P950ER. I don't know how is the GUI part compatible with the new tuxedo-keyboard module (, haven't tested it yet.

Looks like the source file still has 0.1.0 version. Any chances on updating this? Also, would be lovely to have P950ER patched in as mentioned in:

Thanks Cork, I forgot it when I added the patch.

The .SRCINFO is out of sync with the PKGBUILD file (rel 5 vs rel 6).

Hi aatoma! Thanks, I changed the URL.

Hi mrozanc,

build fails because upstream URL is no longer valid

Now I confirm that it is works for Clevo W650SC (airplane LED and key).

Yes you are right about dependency on gcc, though DKMS itself depends on it - no need to doubling it. Anyway, thanks, because the main issue was fixed.

Hello arisudesu,
As this is a DKMS package, the module is built on each kernel update, so gcc is needed to compile it. I think assuming base-devel is installed on an AUR PKGBUILD should be relevant only in the makedepends context, not in the actual package dependencies (cf. the wiki about makedepends: otherwise anyone installing my package without using AUR could have a broken dependency.

About your custom kernel compatibility issue, you are right, I pushed it with linux-headers only.
