    There's a *nix Deathadder driver developed by Michael Busch.

    Razer DeathAdder Mouse configuration tool

    This is a configuration utility for the Razer DeathAdder on Linux systems.
    It also supports setting the scan-resolution of Razer Krait mice.

    You can control the LEDs, scanning resolution and frequency and profiles with this tool. In future things like firmware upload are also planned.

      Does anyone was able to compile it under amd64? I written ebuilds for Gentoo, on my Laptop (x86), but when I tried at home (amd64) they failed. I had problem with the required libdebug dependency.

          you tried with "linux32" command in front of compile?
          I'm not gentoo user so I don't know how gentoo handles 32bit libs

            Sorry for the double post
            But there's now a GUI Util for configuring razer mice:

            This is the next generation Razer device configuration tool bringing the Razer gaming experience to the free OpenSource world.

            This utility is supposed to replace the old deathaddercfg utility.
            It features a device HAL library, a python razer HAL module, a commandline tool and a graphical QT tool to configure the devices.
