OpenRGB is a free and open source application to control RGB lighting for a multitude of devices, independent of the manufacturer. Linux and Windows
Usually each component manufacturer has their own software for controlling RGB lights, with some requiring an online account to function. For Linux users, even that is not usually available since most of these applications are proprietary and Windows only. This is where OpenRGB comes in. OpenRGB is a free and open source application to control RGB lighting for a multitude of devices, independent of the manufacturer.
It’s working on my Manjaro Linux using the AppImage executable. It was not detecting my USB devices though until I ran it with admin privileges. So the keyboard is working fine, but does seem I may have to patch the kernel for the fans and CPU coolers to work. That always requires some caution so don’t just jump in and take that step until doing some homework on their Gitlab issues forum.
