Another fantastic update to OpenRazer with version 3.6.0 bringing support for more Razer devices on Linux along with various improvements.
Like many other hardware vendors, Razer do not officially support Linux with their software to tweak things, thankfully the community keeps on giving with OpenRazer. Pairing up OpenRazer with an app like Polychromatic can give you a pretty great experience. Polychromatic actually had a small update recently too with v0.8.1.
With this new OpenRazer release these devices are now supported:
- Razer Laptop Stand Chroma.
- Razer Blade 14 (2022).
- Razer Core X Chroma.
- Razer Basilisk V3 Pro.
- Razer DeathStalker V2 Pro.
- Razer Blade 15 Base (2022).
- Razer HyperPolling Wireless Dongle.
- Razer Pro Click Mini (Receiver).

- Razer Ornata V3 X.
- Razer DeathAdder V2 Lite.
Plus there's these improvements:
- Plenty of cleanup in the daemon around the screensaver suspend/resume functions.
- Prepare for better error handling in the kernel driver.
- daemon: sanity check set_dpi_xy call for AVAILABLE_DPI devices.
- daemon: clean up custom mouse get methods.
