Razer devices

Hey folks, does anyone have Razer devices working 100% properly? I followed their wiki instructions to add the opensource Razer kernel modules and services, added myself to the hotplug group (or whatever it was), made sure to add the modules to /etc/modules, but for some reason the mouse will simply not work. I can "see" the mouse - I can even mess with some of its values in razergenie - but the cursor simply will not move. This is unfortunately blocking my ability to use BL Lithium so I'd really like to find a solution here smile

Re: Razer devices

libratbag does not support them because of https://github.com/libratbag/libratbag/ … er-devices . Personally I'm using Solaar to drive my Logitech mouse but Razer seems like no man's land.

Do Razer mice not work without a specific driver on Linux?? Wow, just wow. USB HID is a pretty standard thing.

Did you try https://openrazer.github.io/? (After removing all that proprietary kernel module stuff).

If the mouse already kind of works, perhaps there is value in looking elsewhere.

What does the output of the following commands say when you've connected your mouse?

xinput --list --long
lsusb
lsusb -t
lsmod

And do you see any errors when connecting/disconnecting the mouse in dmesg?

In lsusb -t, it's important to see which driver is bound to the device. If it's the standard driver, chances are the Razer driver is not even attached to the device/not loaded.


Per aspera ad astra.

Re: Razer devices

I'm going to reboot here and have a look, but I actually think it's the "Razer driver is not even attached to the device" issue above. How would I fix this? Blacklist the driver that _is_ attached, and reboot?

Re: Razer devices

I also can’t get this to work at all in Arch. It used to work, unless I’m crazy. The whole razer thing is a cesspool anyway and I’m frustrated I ever spent money on their products (had two laptops under light usage crap out after less than a year each).

Re: Razer devices

Final update (I guess) - in an interesting twist of fate I somehow got this working in Arch. I believe swapping USB ports was part of this, but can't be sure. tongue I just hope it stays this way.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Razer devices

Your post seem incoherent and patchy, it's hard to get a clear picture of your efforts & what they resulted in.
A repo search for "razer" pulls up quite a few results both on Arch and on Helium.
Quit thrashing, roll up your sleeves and start reading some documentation?

Re: Razer devices

My last post said I got it working mysteriously and until then I was adding comments from an iPad since my keyboard and mouse would not work.

And I did read all available documentation I was able to find.

Thanks for the help, but I can’t say I appreciate your tone. Last time I checked this is a forum for hobbyists. If it’s reasonable to police threads here with some kind of StackOverflow police attitude, perhaps I should go elsewhere...admittedly I’ve been away from the BL community for a while but I don’t recall this being the norm in the past.

Re: Razer devices

^ @ohnonot is known for his impulsive grumpiness! However, that is balanced by constructive contributions at other times smile

I think it is fair to say that on the whole this isn't an "RTFM" forum.
