BlackWidow control

Python 3 script to enable macro keys of BlackWidow keyboard under GNU/Linux

It just enables the macro keys which can then be configured as hotkeys in your desktop environment. However it does not enable the ability to record macros and to switch between different configurations like the Windows driver does.

Supported devices

The script is know to work with the following BlackWidow editions:

  • regular edition (the ceapest one which has no background light)
  • the regular 2013 edition

Notes

  • The script likely works with the ultimate editions, too. However, this has not been tested yet.
  • The script does not work with the 2016 editions (yet).
  • The script has been tested using the firmware update from Razer Synapse 2.0. Hence the script might not work when an older firmware version is used.

Instructions

  • Pyusb is required to run the script.
  • Use -h for a list of available options.
  • To invoke the script automatically when the keyboard is plugged-in an udev rule can be added (see razer_blackwidow.rules).
  • The repository PKGBUILDs contains files for building an Arch Linux package.
