I assume I am using the G3 controller. I get this in dmesg when I unplug and replug it:

And I get a crap ton of these in demsg:

They are still fillling up even after disabling the daemon.

After installing numpy and gobject through either pacman or pip without root(first mistake), When trying to run the daemon through systemd using the command:

systemctl enable --now linux-thermaltake-rgb

as root

and checking with systemctl status linux-thermaltake-rgb

the following output is given:

After editing the source and using the non-deprecated method of loading the yaml file, this output shows:

ok. after fiddeling around a bit more, I installed numpy and gobject with pip as superuser (su) and I hardcoded the device product id and vendor id in the source(bad way to fix this because IDs might change.) in drivers.py(line 35 and 36). And oh my god. I finally got this running.

this is the output of systemctl status:

The only package who can talk to this stupid controller on linux. Massive props chestm007. So far, only the speed control works. I can't be bothered to troubleshoot the RGB for now. Let me know if anyone got that running. It runs as a daemon and also a normal program as long as it has root.

Cheers.

Thanks, I don't think there are explicit rules about this. The Arch philosophy is to provide "vanilla" packages (as few modifications as possible), so this actually goes against my request. But this package already does this by deploying the config files to their intended locations in /etc anyway.

Maybe a cleaner solution would be that the upstream project provide a Makefile so that package() is reduced to just something like make install PREFIX=$pkgdir and packaging is straightforward for all distros.

chestm007 commented on 2019-02-20 21:33

Hey, i've addressed everything except:

the whole $pkgdir/usr/share directory could be deleted from the package since files are deployed to their proper location anyway

I'm still a little new to packaging and cant find any documentation stating the correct way of doing that - if you can point me somewhere that would be amazing!

nicoulaj commented on 2019-02-15 13:30

Thanks for packaging !

I have a few requests:

  • Can you add backup=('etc/linux_thermaltake_rgb/config.yml') ? otherwise the config will be overwritten with every update
  • A makedepends on git is needed, or it can't build in a clean chroot
  • Actually it would be even better to fetch a source tarball instead of using git to avoid a full clone of the repository, eg: source=('<https://github.com/chestm007/linux_thermaltake_riing/archive/>${pkgver}.tar.gz')
  • Last minor thing: the whole $pkgdir/usr/share directory could be deleted from the package since files are deployed to their proper location anyway
