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.

following error occurs on 2 different machines(both x86_64):

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:84 (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 0.15.0) 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.

Thanks Francisco for your investigation and the PKGBUILD. I've made several changes on it so it will fit nicely into the package (and will remove after uninstalling the package). roccat-rools.install will take care of reloading the rules after update/install/remove.

After dealing with the problem described [here](, I have provided the PKGBUILD with the required changes to automate the process [here]( It should solve similar problems to mine. Please let me know if it looks acceptable for you.

When opening the menue entry for the Suora keyboard it is showing the window for Ryos TKL/Pro and thus producing a warning "No Ryos TKL/Pro found".

@pekka: Thanks, I've added the package.

Has anyone else noticed that after using this some of your files may be owned by the group roccat instead of users?

aaronfischer commented on 2016-06-01 08:09

@dantob: yes
