did you try to sudo it or use it as root? that solved it for me.

That is not a problem with the package, but with the program itself.
Please create a new issue at the github repository (Upstrem URL) and we can discuss it there.
Make sure to add the model number of your mouse.

Hi, installation went OK but setting anything fails (e.g. rivalctl --cpi1 400) on:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/rivalctl", line 9, in <module>
load_entry_point('rivalctl==0.1', 'console_scripts', 'rivalctl')()
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/rival/", line 66, in main
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/rival/", line 19, in _main
device = open_device()
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/rival/", line 64, in open_device
device = Rival(dev_path = dev_path)
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/rival/", line 82, in __init__
device = open_hiddevice(hid_id, dev_path)
File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/rival/", line 41, in open_hiddevice
device = hidraw.HIDRaw(open(dev_path, 'w+'))
TypeError: invalid file: None

any idea what's wrong?

@sbt1 python2-webcolors now in the aur. You should have no issue with that now.

the package "python2-webcolors" does not exist, I can only find the "python" (so python3, I guess) version. Is there any way I overlooked to get it?

And I can not build the dependency "python-hidraw-git" because of a problem with its dependency "python-ioctl-opt-git", the comment is there:

I would love to use this application, and hope to get it working!

Thank you very much!
