This doesn't seem to work for G710+. The M keys do nothing, G produces 1-6 as if without driver.

Thanks for the bug report! I didn't had the chance to look further into this yet, but I already have a few ideas what might cause it. I'll keep you updated on this.

Can confirm the build error with this and the git build. Submitted issue on GitHub.

I'm getting an error when building the package:

Updated package to version 0.4.1. Fixes an issue, which lead to an application crash. Updating is recommended.

@Psykar & Jake: I've applied the changes. Thanks for your feedback!

@zimmertr: I've confirmed correct functionality of 0.4.0 on Microsoft SideWinder X4, Logitech G710+ and Logitech G105 keyboards. Please check status of sidewinderd using 'systemctl status sidewinderd'. My wild guess is: your configuration got overwritten by the update and sidewinderd fails to start.

Also, tinyxml2 is now in community repo and not in AUR anymore. I would advise you to completely uninstall sidewinderd and tinyxml2 and reinstall them again. Make sure you git clone sidewinderd from AUR to an empty directory. Good luck!

Pacman overwrites the (modified) config file on every update, to prevent this you can mark it in the PKGBUILD:

@zimmertr which exact keyboard are you using? I will try to reproduce it.

zimmertr commented on 2016-09-22 01:41

This package is no longer working for me after an update about a week ago. The button above the macros on my keyboard that shows which mode (1,2,3) you're in is no longer illuminated and the macro keys no longer function. When I try do a package upgrade pacman fails with:

:: failed to verify sidewinderd integrity

now too.

SHould be something like


Otherwise it ends up downloading the tarball and naming it 'sidewinderd' (ie no version, no extension or anything.
It still runs fine, but leaves a confusing file with no extension behind in the build directory :)
