    Anyone know if support for exporting and importing profiles is in the works?

    Seems like a Flatpak gets published at Flathub in the coming days.

    Have not tested it fully, but managed to get it installed on my system and it at least detects the mouse. Using Kubuntu 18.04 64bit and a G502 (non RGB).
    Even with the ppa I had to take a few extra steps to get it to work. First, the version in the ppa is apparently old and has a bug where it will not start if you have an unassigned button. I had to load LGS in Windows and assign actions to all the mouse buttons. Second issue, even with the ppa I was still missing a library. Forgot which one, but I think it is python3-gi-cairo. After those two workarounds the program launches with no problems.

    One less reason to keep my Windows install. Excellent. Going to give it a go with my G502.

    Yeah, from a code/library perspective it makes sense. The repo where the code lives in is not all that relevant, what doesn't make sense is that it's only available as part of an effectively monolithic release.
    It's just a DBus lib, should just be split off and be a separate project with it's own lifecycle and no unnecessary dependencies. Then you have a usable project and a usable building block.

    Thanks... Then I'll wait for the upgrade and subsequently try to to add both my G400s and G402 to their list of supported devices afterwards.

    What's unfortunate though is their dependency on systemd's dbus lib, which effectively means a dependency on systemd because it's quiet impractical to get that lib without getting the rest of systemd. Kinda crazy such a simple userspace program effectively depends on a init system
    it's linux prorgam, it depends on linux. linux' init system is part of systemd

    Debian sid needed additional packages for Ratbag since I didn't have meson/ninja installed.
    If someone else was wondering the same, here's the list.
    Code:
    meson libevdev-dev libsystemd-dev check valgrind swig python3-dev
    Anyway, turns out the Logitech G602 is 'special' and of course does not work. Yay.

    Didn't install Piper since there's no point for me atm.
