Hey, could you consider packaging a systemd service with this package?

Did the module config file disappear? I'm pretty sure this package used to provide a config file to load the i2c_dev module on startup, but it seems to be gone now.

@Katt Gotcha, so -git packages should make sure they're on a system that doesn't have the release installed. Already removed the provides line. Will remove the conflict for the next PKGBUILD release.

Also, why not have it conflict with openrgb-git package? Left that alone for now.

Because that's the job of the -git package, also packages should never "provide" itself. The -git package should conflict and provide openrgb.

@katt made some changes but build had a failure with pkgconf uninstalled so added a makedeps for it in case someone doesn't have base-devel installed (which should be required for AUR building but to be on the safe side).

Also, why not have it conflict with openrgb-git package? Left that alone for now. Thanks for checking further into the file.

Could you please patch OpenRGB with these changes to ? Without the patch USB devices might show up multiple times due to the update to hidapi 0.10.1 (see

How do I compile it to where I can change the LEDS on MSI Mystic Light motherboards?

Hello again, sorry for disturbing the peace once more, but I got a case that shows my RGB more, so I actually started using this more :P

I fixed up the PKGBUILD so that it ships the included .conf and .desktop file, which includes far more rules and an actually working .desktop file.

I should probably submit some of this upstream but honestly after dealing with qmake I'm mentally spent.

@katt thanks for the suggestions to the PKGBUILD. Changes have been committed.
