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:
Because every time i try to upgrade the system with yaourt/aur, it complain that roccat-tool-common need that exactly version of libgaminggear.

Thnx to mattlyons I found my issue. My FindGAMINGGEAR0.cmake was not in /usr/share/cmake/Modules but in /usr/share/cmake-3.0/Modules, but I had to copy it in /usr/share/cmake-3.1/Modules to make it work.

I fixed it, FindGAMINGGEAR0.cmake is located in /usr/share/cmake/Modules, when the script is looking for it in /usr/share/cmake-3.1/Modules. Easy fix, copy it into the folder.

Can't reproduce this. Can you provide a fix for this?

Ghul commented on 2015-01-21 08:39

same issue here as mattlyons

@aaronfischer: Reinstalling didn't change anything.

aaronfischer commented on 2015-01-16 09:26

@mattlyons: You need to (re?)install libgaminggear 0.5.0

I'm getting a failure building:
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:67 (FIND_PACKAGE):
By not providing "FindGAMINGGEAR0.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project
has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
"GAMINGGEAR0", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "GAMINGGEAR0"
(requested version 0.5.0) with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "GAMINGGEAR0" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
"GAMINGGEAR0_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If
"GAMINGGEAR0" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it
has been installed.

Shouldn't roccateventhandler be started by systemd? The desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart/ is started for local users only, and as far as I know, local users don't have access to /dev/input/. I can only use roccat macros when I run "sudo roccateventhandler".

@aaronfischer, thanks for the info and the update.

@Von: I subscribed to the updates, and get the mail, but did not had the time to check the Changelog, figure out the libgaminggear version, prepare the PKGBUILD, test it and upload it. Sorry for the delay. We are now running version 2.2.0 with libgaminggear 0.5.0. Please note that kmod-roccat is no longer needed for the most devices. You can remove this package now if you not own a kone device. IF you own a kone device, upgrade to 1.0.0.
