Please remember, that this package uses DKMS for building the kernel module and as such requires the kernel headers for your kernel installed. See also

Another manual step that needs to be taken is adding your user to the plugdev group, e.g. using the command sudo gpasswd -a $USER plugdev.

This package has 1 AUR-only dependency, python-notify2 which you might need to install manually as AUR helpers often have problems with this package.

Hi, The instalation not work for me, get error "failed to retrieve openrazer package" here the full error:

The pacaur are the last version 4.8.2

Any idea how to solve it?


P.D.: How make correct syntase for post? the wiki give some link, try to copy-past the console and use "< code> < /code >" but get only the two yellow line :(

P.D.2: Syntase is "< pre>< code> text here " wihout space :) Work also with ``` at the start and end of the text.

It`s work for me in manjaro, but I need to do those steps: - yaourt -S linux414-headers (change for you version of linux kernel) - yaourt -S python-notify2 - yaourt -S python-openrazer - yaourt -S openrazer-meta

It's probably you, there was a Python upgrade from 3.6 to 3.7, you need to rebuild your Python dependencies.

Is it me, the package or the upstream?

% openrazer-daemon -Fv
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/bin/openrazer-daemon", line 11, in <module>
    from openrazer_daemon.daemon import RazerDaemon, __version__
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'openrazer_daemon'

There is a problem installing this package, apparently it loops with python-openrazer.

z3ntu commented on 2018-07-16 14:33

@MoroS: I'm still actually using pacaur because I want the diff between the PKGBUILD of the installed version and the one that'll be built which wasn't available in other helpers like yay or trizen last time I checked. Sometimes when pacaur fails then I go back to just calling makepkg

MoroS commented on 2018-07-16 14:30

@z3ntu Neither Yaourt or a simple makepkg doesn't seem to handle multi-package PKGBUILDs with different dependencies. Either way yes: installing the missing packages by hand solves the issue.

Side-question: do you use any AUR helper to manage your own? I've been using Yaourt for years, but it has it's issues (like this one or other multi-package related things)

z3ntu commented on 2018-07-16 14:12

@MoroS: That's just a sign that your AUR helper can't handle dependencies properly. Try installing python-notify2 explicitly and then only afterwards install openrazer-meta

MoroS commented on 2018-07-16 14:10

Hi, there seems to be a dependency issue. It's lacking python-notify2 and falls in a dependency fail cascase:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: unable to satisfy dependency 'python-notify2' required by openrazer-daemon :: unable to satisfy dependency 'python-notify2' required by openrazer-daemon :: unable to satisfy dependency 'openrazer-daemon' required by openrazer-meta :: unable to satisfy dependency 'python-notify2' required by openrazer-daemon :: unable to satisfy dependency 'openrazer-daemon' required by python- openrazer :: unable to satisfy dependency 'python-openrazer' required by openrazer-meta :: unable to satisfy dependency 'python-notify2' required by openrazer-daemon :: unable to satisfy dependency 'openrazer-daemon' required by python-openrazer

@z3ntu I think you made the same mistake with the SHA for version 2.2.1-1
For me the tagged release is showing 7827C2398B695EA002EDBD5C7F92FDD722039886F946B35DA537DDFF9E998F5E
