This is the next generation Razer device configuration tool bringing the Razer gaming experience to the free OpenSource world.

This utility is a replacement for the old deathaddercfg tool.

The tool architecture is based on "razerd", which is a background daemon doing all of the lowlevel privileged hardware accesses. The user interface tools are "razercfg", a commandline tool; and "qrazercfg", a QT4 based graphical device configuration tool (see screenshot below).

If you want support for any other Razer mouse and you are a software developer and you have actual code to contribute, please contact me. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Razercfg does only offer options for features supported by the actual hardware of the mouse. So if the hardware does not support button remapping for example, razercfg will not offer button options, even if the windows driver does. Button remapping on these devices has to be done by xmodmap, xinput or other X11 tools. One exception is profiles, though. If the mouse does not support profiles in hardware, razercfg will emulate 20 profiles in software.
