EnableRazer 0.0.4 Overview ********** Utility built on Haskell to enable the capture of extended keys from Razer BlackWidow Stealth Ultimate and Anansi keyboards. Once they can be captured, they can then be handled by whatever hardware event management interface used. Technical ********** This utility sends an initialization signal to Razer keyboard devices which allows them to generate keycodes which can then be processed in the same way as any other keyboard device. Note that the keycodes generated may need to be remapped to perform a desired function. License ********** Please see the file LICENSE which should be included with this distribution. Requirements ********** This utility has build-time dependencies on: - The Glasgow Haskell Compiler (ghc) - Haskell USB package - libusb-1.0 There is also a runtime dependency on: - libusb-1.0 Checking Hardware ********** Before building this utility, it is advisable to check that your hardware device ID is included. To obtain the hardware ID of your device on Linux, use the following command : lsusb -d 1532: This will display the hardware ID of all Razer devices connected to the USB bus in the format Bus nnn Device nnn: ID 1532:dddd Razer USA, Ltd The ID, "1532:dddd" is what is used to identify your device, where 'dddd' is the product identifier (required below). Currently included hardware ID's are 010d, 010e and 010f. If your device ID is not in that list, then you need to modify 'EnableRazer/src/Main.hs' at line 67 and add your device ID in the format "0xdddd" (as per the other ID's listed there). Note that EnableRazer will send the initialization signal any device with a matching ID, so if you have other devices with an ID in that list that you do not want an initialization signal sent to, you must remove that ID. Installation ********** On most linux distributions, this package can be installed using the following method: - Install the 'ghc', 'cabal-install' and 'libusb' packages using your package manager of choice - cabal update - cabal install usb - cd EnableRazer/ - cabal configure - cabal build Once built, copy the binary 'EnableRazer/dist/build/EnableRazer/EnableRazer' to a location in your $PATH (eg. '/sbin/EnableRazer'). Usage ********** There are no usage options. Simply run the EnableRazer binary and it will send the initialization signal to devices with the listed ID's. If successful, the output WRITING SET_REPORT OK should be displayed. If it is not, then the device was likely not initialized and you may need to investigate the "Checking Hardware" section above.
