RazerGenie, a Qt app for configuring your Razer devices version 1.0 out now

By - | Views: 19,124

Needing a good UI for managing Razer hardware on Linux? RazerGenie is one (of a few) choice, and a big 1.0 release just went out. It can work with Razer devices thanks to the excellent OpenRazer project, which bundles a ton of drivers together to get loads of devices working nicely with all the added extras.

This release came with a "Major backend rewrite with vastly improved support for devices" and these highlights:

  • All devices can now open the Custom Editor, even if there's no specific layout available.
  • Add various specific layouts to the custom editor (incl. Firefly and some mice).
  • Support all LEDs available on newer devices (side LEDs, etc.)
  • Support non-standard polling rates.
  • Restore current effect and colors on open.
  • New translations: Dutch and Russian.
  • Various other smaller changes.

It's always nice to see the open source community building apps like this, especially as most hardware vendors like Razer basically ignore Linux.
