Hello, I’m slowly moving to linux (and looking forward to LookingGlass coming out of alpha with excitment), and I was quite disappointed by lack of linux support from such peripheral-giants as Razer and Logitech. I’m not even talking about Creative.
While there’s at least OpenRazer for Razer, which gives at least some control (but even there it still lacks, for example I could not set a custom wave color for my Deathstalker keyboard), support is still quite poor, and not native.
Another issue was with my SoundBlaster ZxR, which just does not work in Linux. I mean it probably does, but without drivers I can’t switch it from Speakers into Headphones mode, and without it it’s of no use for me really.
So in this thread I’d like for everyone to share what peripherals and hardware has native linux support from it’s developers.
- Keyboards (with R G B! )
- Audio cards (internal and external)
And it’s also possible to split things into a few categories:
0 - No support on Linux. It just does not work or works with a lot of bugs and problems, that it’s easier to just ditch it
1 - Works on Linux, but no software or drivers available for Linux
2 - Works on Linux and has community-developed drivers, which may lack in functionality but at least do something (like OpenRazer)
3 - Works on Linux and has official developer support
A - Works on Linux just because no specific drivers\software are required
I hope this thread may be interesting to a lot of people in the long run.
If this is a wrong place to ask, just tell me where to go with this question
