I'm seeing the keyboard always show up as disconnected. The aur install went smooth. The das_keyboard_q-service service is showing as active (running)

I can't switch profiles, change colors, etc.. The current das-keyboard-q version is:

local/das-keyboard-q 3.3.3-1

I can also see the keyboard in the lsusb:

Bus 003 Device 008: ID 24f0:202b Metadot X50 RGB Mechanical Keyboard

Any ideas of what could be missing or going wrong here?

The url needs to be pointed to the new one and the new MD5 is 5214b5ef6dc4fe0faa4012154512cc9c. Everything seems to be fine with no further modification.

In order to get the Q software to see my keyboard i had to enable the service:

$systemctl status das_keyboard_q-service

○ das_keyboard_q-service.service - Das Keyboard Q-Service Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/das_keyboard_q-service.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: inactive (dead)

$systemctl start das_keyboard_q-service

This installed fine. Q asks me to connect my keyboard even though it is. It lights up and i can control my arch machine's volume and sleep with it (and I'm typing this :)

I connected it to a windows 10 machine and flashed the firmware and was able to connect Q to it and make it do things.

Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks

The tiny 16x16 tray icon can be replaced with another (256x256) asset within the electron archive:

 pkill -9 das-keyboard-q
 asar extract /usr/lib/das-keyboard-q/resources/app.asar ~/das-extract
 cp ~/das-extract/gray-q-icon.png ~/das-extract/16x16.png
 sudo asar pack ~/das-extract /usr/lib/das-keyboard-q/resources/app.asar
