Getting RGB Peripherals To Work¶
To get RGB peripherals to work on Linux you may need to download some extra software. This is because most companies don't yet offer a Linux version of their software (i.e iCue for corsair).
Instead, we can use this: https://github.com/ckb-next/ckb-next
The docs are pretty self-explanatory, so please read through them: https://github.com/ckb-next/ckb-next/wiki/Linux-Installation
i. Install the required dependencies:
sudo dnf install gcc gcc-c++ make cmake glibc zlib-devel qt5-qtbase-devel \ quazip-qt5-devel systemd-devel pulseaudio-libs-devel qt5-linguist qt5-qtx11extras-devel \ xcb-util-wm-devel xcb-util-devel libxcb-devel git dbusmenu-qt5-devel
git clone https://github.com/ckb-next/ckb-next.git
It is pretty simple to build it from source and after that you will have a new application that can be used to control the lighting on your peripherals and create all the cool effects you need to program effectively.
