@gonzo2028:
There are 2 alternative ways:
1. @aaronfischer splits the package into 25 different ones and whenever there is an update he will have to update 25 individual packages; good for the useres, not so good for the maintainer.
2. @aaronfischer "merges" all the files from the split packages into a single package. This will result in installing binaries, udev rules and .desktop files for 25 devices for every user. Less work for the maintainer, not practical for the users.

As is it, the maintainer maintains one single "split-package" and users that use an AUR helper such as yaourt, can uninstall the packages they don't need. This way users get to keep only the files they need to support their own device and the maintainer does not have to modify and commit 25 packages every time there is an update.

Hope this helps clear it.

@edward_81: Please read the previous comments here. I've talked to Stefan about this. Every version of roccat-tools need a specific version of libgaminggear to work correctly. There are two options here: Consistent/reliable package and a little bit of hasle on upgrades -- or easy upgrade process and the chance of a broken package with weird bugs everywhere. I've choosen the first option.

Is possible to change the dependency line for libgaminggear from:
libgaminggear=0.11.1
to:
libgaminggear>=0.11.1
Because every time i try to upgrade the system with yaourt/aur, it complain that roccat-tool-common need that exactly version of libgaminggear.

Hi jordz
Did you restarted your computer after having installed the package?
The roccat group is set when udev gets loaded.
