@sekret thanks for your comment.

It was recently brought to my attention that tuxedo-keyboard and tuxedo-keyboard-ite may violate package naming guidelines. To avoid deletion for violating the naming guidelines, tuxedo-keyboard and tuxedo-keyboard-ite have been renamed to tuxedo-keyboard-dkms and tuxedo-keyboard-ite-dkms. Merge requests for both packages have already been submitted.

It is, as far as I know, not clearly defined whether packages that are only available as dkms packages must have -dkms in the name or not.

I hope you can understand my decision.

Why this additional package? tuxedo-keyboard is exactly the same. It's outdated, granted, but still, there's no reason for this package.

I'd also say that this tuxedo-keyboard-ite is an optional dependency at most.

edit: Or does it compile differently with this package installed? In that case it's probably a real dependency. But since tuxedo-keyboard-ite depends on tuxedo-keyboard, I'd recommend to leave tuxedo-keyboard-ite out of here.

The latest update introduced a dependency loop:

tuxedo-keyboard requires tuxedo-keyboard-ite but tuxedo-keyboard-ite requires tuxedo-keyboard

Could you please fix the name of the file from $pkgname-$pkgver-tar.gz to $pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz (- -> . for the file ending) in the line source=($pkgname-$pkgver-tar.gz::https://github.com/tuxedocomputers/tuxedo-keyboard/archive/v${pkgver}.tar.gz tuxedo_io.conf) ?

Anybody else having problems with linux 5.9.x ??? After kernel update this one is broken, like in won't load anymore... [edit]...ok, nailed it, obviously this is still the issue mentioned by @huyizheng, after rebuilding with new kernel module is available and loads again...
