Steam Deck and Open Razer
Sayjimwoo 7 Nov
Hello

I am new to Linux and would be so grateful if anyone could give me step-by-step instructions on installing Openrazer on my Steam Deck so I can control the lighting on my Blackwidow Mini Hyperspeed keyboard. As a Windows man, I don't know anything about Linux, so I am still finding my feet with the platform. Any detailed instructions from the community would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I suggest you don’t. SteamOS is different to other Linux distros in that it’s read only, so installing a driver requires making the filesystem read-write which is a straight road to messing up your install if you don't know what you’re doing, plus every update will delete your changes.

Stick to what you can install with flatpak on the Steam Deck. You can also just install Mint or Ubuntu on a regular computer you might have and try stuff there.
