    Phoronix: OpenRazer+Polychromatic Make It Easy To Configure Razer Keyboards/Mice On Linux

    While Razer at this time does not provide any official software support on Linux, via the OpenRazer/Polychromatic projects largely driven by the open-source community, they are making impressive headway. Last time I tried the Polychromatic UI that interfaces with the OpenRazer drivers for configuring Razer products on Linux, it wasn't working too well. But now it seems to have matured a lot and is working out quite well.

    Nice. I'm going to have to try Linux on my 2016 Razer Blade Pro. I'm not ready to repartition its Windows files, but a USB boot would be interesting.

    My Dell laptop with Linux is getting a bit old in the tooth.

      It's very nice to see Razer implementing their software fluently. However, I prefer keyboards and mice that don't have to be configured per software at all. Hardware-keys for common features like volume control or keyboard backlight, dpi switch are the only things I need. I really don't care which color the backlight has for example.

        But then you could control the DPI of the different switch positions, I guess... More control/freedom doesn't hurt, right? That's why most of us are here

          I don't understand where you are applying it, on Windows software? Because the news are about a community project to razer products...

            You mean we don't have to log into the cloud to configure a mouse? Also on new razer products can they store the settings internally?

              I don't understand what I read in the article anymore...

                Brands like Zowie are made with that idea in mind. There are also others that follow suit, and fill in blanks. I've bought a mouse designed with the same idea in mind from a completely different manufacturer. It has a newer sensor I wanted, and a better shape.
