Modules included in this package
Building and Install
- gcc or clang
- dkms (Only when using this module with DKMS functionality)
Warning when installing the module:
Use either method only. Do not combine installation methods, such as starting with the build step below and proceeding to use the same build artifacts with the DKMS module. Otherwise the module built via dkms will fail to load with an
exec_format error on newer kernels due to a mismatched version magic.
This is why the DKMS build step begins with a
make clean step.
For convenience, on platforms where DKMS is in use, skip to the DKMS section directly.
Clone the Git Repo:
git clone https://github.com/tuxedocomputers/tuxedo-keyboard.git cd tuxedo-keyboard git checkout release
Build the Module:
make clean && make
The DKMS route:
Add as DKMS Module:
Install the Module:
make clean sudo make dkmsinstall
Load the Module with modprobe:
sudo modprobe tuxedo_keyboard
You might also want to activate
tuxedo_io module the same way if you are using TCC.
Uninstalling the DKMS module:
Remove the DKMS module and source:
sudo make dkmsremove sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/tuxedo_keyboard.conf
Load the Module on boot:
If a module is relevant it will be loaded automatically on boot. If it is not loaded after a reboot, it most likely means that it is not needed.
Add Module to /etc/modules
sudo su echo tuxedo_keyboard >> /etc/modules
