Please remember, that this package uses DKMS for building the kernel module and as such requires the kernel headers for your kernel installed. See also

Another manual step that needs to be taken is adding your user to the plugdev group, e.g. using the command sudo gpasswd -a $USER plugdev.

This package has 1 AUR-only dependency, python-notify2 which you might need to install manually as AUR helpers often have problems with this package.

@Spixmaster: I was experiencing the same issue as well. I was able to get around this and get the AUR package installed by using:

yay -S python-notify2

From there, I followed the rest of the installation instructions, and I was good to go! I hope this helps.

I use the AUR helper yay. Why does it have problems with the installation of the AUR dependency python-notify2? The installation cannot be completed because of that.

@z3ntu: It worked when I tried after rebooting.

@sanyarajan: Can you try the build again? It might be a race condition in the Makefile..

Can I request support for the Razer Viper Ultimate here? Just got that mouse, but it doesn't seem to be on the supported devices list.

Edit: mouse RGB works ok in 2.8. Dock/charge station does not.

To make this work in 2020

pacman -S python-pip pip install notify2

Patch it like this:

At the end remove broken openrazer-2.7.xz package and its done.

Hi, I have been trying to install this package and I keep getting an error that says the file is corrupt. I've searched for remedies to this error such as updating keys. But nothing has worked.

any idea if one of the files is actually corrupted?

Will this work with the new Wraith Prism Coolers that come with the AMD Ryzen 3rd generation processors? It says the LED lighting is controlled by Razer Chroma.

@tjc This package is of the "stable"/official releases, so whenever there’s a new release of openrazer from upstream, I’d expect that this package follows shortly after. If you want the latest code from the git repository, then yes, the -git package is what you should be using. (Like for pretty much all other AUR and Arch packages.)
