Hey, could you consider packaging a systemd service with this package?

Sorry for bothering you all again. I've just booted from a liveusb with ubuntu 20.04, installed deps, loaded i2c_dev and i2c_i801 and openrgb 0.5 .deb package, and it works flawlessly. I'm still unable to view my RAM sticks while using Arch. Any clues on the differences between OSs? Ubuntu's kernel was 5.4. I'm thinking this may be a problem with the package. Thanks.

I've fixed the build issue & removed obsolete portions.

Try the following see if the ram modules show up

sudo modprobe i2c_piix4
sudo openrgb -l

MSI z490 with 2 sticks of HyperX Fury and Asus Vega 56. I know that MSI is disabled right now because of bricking problems and that my GPU is not supported in Linux, yet I cannot see the RAM modules.

What's your setup? Also, paste the output of the following commands.

lsmod | grep i2c
openrgb -l
sudo openrgb -l

Yes, I did change my PKGBUILD and installed the package successfully. However, no devices show up and checking the issues of the project no one seems to be having any troubles. Is there a chance that it's related to archlinux only? I've tried with a patched kernel too, no luck. Thanks.

See the below comment from harre. The binary name has changed from OpenRGB to openrgb. Either apply the patch provided in harre's comment or edit the PKGBUILD manually and change the binary name. It's been more than a week and it seems the maintainer abandoned this package. I'm going to send an Orphan request. Perhaps someone else can keep this package up to date.

Not sure anymore what's required to get openrgb working. Is this package supposed to work by just installing it or is there something else I need to do? I've read the comments but I can't get it working.

It seems the binary has been renamed to openrgb from OpenRGB.

Create patch by:

$ cat > /tmp/build-fix.patch

Paste the following followed by ctrl-d:
