Hello everyone, I’ve been watching the channel for a while now but I’m new to the forum.
I’ve been using Linux for more than 6 years now and I’m quite comfortable with it (although I’m no expert, I just have a basic understanding on how things work and can deal with most stuff on my own), I’ve used Gentoo for a year and mostly Ubuntu and Ubuntu Studio, I’ve recently built a nice Desktop PC and moved to PopOS since then.
About month ago I’ve bought a pair of Razer Kraken 7.1 headphones, not that great but really good for the price (and I actually had them for half the price with a discount).
Mostly for curiosity and not actually for necessity, I tried installing open-razer.
It was fairly standard and easy and everything seemed to be ok, I followed the official guide like I would normally do.
However, the daemon doesn’t recognize my headphones at all. They’re perfectly working out of the box, but openrazer doesn’t find them.
So I followed the official guide and did everything that needed to be done.
Now, here’s where things get weird. I’ve added my user to the correct groups, I’ve even tried with different - but equivalent - commands, but the daemon still tells me I’m not part of that group.
Here’s some useful output:
sudo usermod -aG plugdev giorgio [sudo] password for giorgio: ~ took 3s
➜ openrazer-daemon Unable to lock on the pidfile.
And yet my user actually IS in the right groups.
➜ cat /etc/group | grep audio audio:x:29:pulse,giorgio ~ ➜ cat /etc/group | grep plugdev plugdev:x:46:giorgio
Any idea on what could be wrong? It might be something very stupid and obvious I’m missing
