    Phoronix: Libratbag-Powered Piper Is Looking Good For Configuring Gaming Mice On Linux

    It's not quite ready for primetime yet by Linux gamers, but Piper as the GTK-powered user-interface for controlling gaming mice on Linux is getting into shape...

    Anyone gotten ratbag to work with a Logitegh G402?

    My info printout is dreary
    Code:
    [B]$ ratbag-command info /dev/input/event1[/B]
    ratbag error: Unsupported sector size: 1024.
    ratbag error: Logitech Gaming Mouse G402: error opening hidraw node (Operation not supported)
    Device 'Logitech Gaming Mouse G402'
    Capabilities: res
    Number of buttons: 3
    Number of leds: 0
    Profiles supported: 1
      Profile 0 (enabled) (active)
        Resolutions:
          0: <disabled>
        Button: 0 type left is mapped to 'none'
        Button: 1 type middle is mapped to 'none'
        Button: 2 type right is mapped to 'none'

      Maybe you're missing a kernel or udev rule to enable hidraw on your mouse? Works for me in Arch on a G303.

        Yes, but will it run on Wayland?

          Looks like GTK3, so I'd guess so.

            GTK3 =! Wayland

            Using GTK3 doesn't automatically mean Wayland is supported, it's just a requirement to use a Wayland-supported toolkit in order to have Wayland support. But there's many more to it, esp. in this case 'cause there's a lot of low-level stuff. So all low-level stuff that would normally request X calls need to request Wayland calls now.

              I assume he'd use libinput too instead of X calls. And if not, it's probably too low level, even for X. But don't quote me on that...

                SSDs are ancient?

                  I think he/she meant "server-side decoration".

                    I know. I asked because apparently he can't explain why SSDs are bad, he just repeats endlessly that they are bad because GNOME devs dropped that feature, so they must be bad and old and whatever.

                    I've had the same discussions with his former self too, Griffin.
