  1. I saw on a thread on the LTT forums someone asking about ICUE in linux, and Nick, the corsair affiliate over there, said for the OP to gather linux users to post over here to voice our desire for linux support. So here I am. Here's the thing about garbage market share numbers: for one, they're obviously not at all accurate. Steam (and some other stat reporters) list linux at around 1 percent, however their methodology is flawed, and then you take something like the Humble Bundle, who reports up to 15 percent of their sales come from Linux. Which is insane given that most of the games they sell don't even run on linux natively. Further, in the enthusiast, general computer-loving community, linux has a far greater proportion of users. Even just releasing a minimal client for things like RGB and fan control, even if it's just something as simple as communicating using the dbus interface, would be all that's necessary to support linux, we can do the rest ourselves. Further, it's been shown time and time again (the Humble numbers are one great example), that when a manufacturer, platform, or developer shows that they are willing to even give token support to linux, we will absolutely throw all the money at that manufacturer/platform/developer. Linux users more than any other group will do most of the work for you, and gladly contribute back as much, if not more, than we are given in terms of support/advancing any software. That's the nature of open-source. Even if you want to release your software on linux under a proprietary license, we will still do a ton of the work and handle most of the support, that's the nature of linux. We just need at minimum the means to do that. Please, please consider doing something like this. Vendor-specific RGB control software is one of the last creature comfort things we are lacking in linux, and treating us as the first-class citizen we deserve to be treated as will give an outsized benefit
  2. Hi Corsair As a Firmware Engineer I have just build a new Workstation with a Ryzen 5950x, Asus Rog Croshair VIII Hero motherboard. Using a Gentoo Linux, currently with kernel gentoo-sources 5.4.80 gives the following warning on boot. dec 24 12:46:28 nova kernel: nvme nvme0: missing or invalid SUBNQN field. dec 24 12:46:28 nova kernel: nvme nvme0: Shutdown timeout set to 10 seconds This issue with invalid SUBNQN field is a known issue in a number of NVMe units. If you look at the kernel code you will see that it has a dedicated quirk for it. See NVME_QUIRK_IGNORE_DEV_SUBNQN in https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/drivers/nvme/host/pci.c So my question is what is fixed in firmware 13 for the drive? Does it include the wrong SUBNQN field? I can't find a detailed changelog, preferable with info about for each commit done to the firmware codebase between the two releases. Second is the firmware files available somewhere or only the tool? Based on the input from others regarding the new firmware and performance I will be relectant to upgrade until I know if the issue about the SUBNQN is fixed. If anyone have an upgraded MP600 1TB, can you please boot a linux (just a bootable USB pen) and verify if you see the issue. Just use the journalctl -b
  3. Hi there, Is there any problem with using this headset on linux (ubuntu)? I prefer to ask before buying :)
  4. Now corsair I'm a huge fan of your products my case is a old vengance c70 case that I've stuck with for a long time. All my peripherals are corsair branded so when I made the switch to Linux/Ubuntu i figured i could use wine or get it off your website. But I was sad to find out the closest I have is CKB-next that only controls the keyboard lighting not the mouse and headset lighting or options(like dpi). The thing that puzzles me is that you have it on 2/3 of the major platforms MacOS and Windows but not on linux. In 2014 in the corsair fourms a post labeled "a (unofficial) linux/ox driver" was posted this was the CKB alpha this had alot of attention even a corsair product manager with the user corsair James said it was interesting and lots of people liked it. This combined with linux gaming growing seeing corsair fully support linux would definitely make more people switch over to Linux itself but also make more people buy their products fourm post: https://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=133929 Others wanting corsair to support linux https://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=191813 Stats of linux users that game: https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam?platform=linux Native and working steam linux games: https://www.protondb.com/ I honestly hope that corsair will eventually support linux.....
  5. Hallo Leute, ich suche für meine Corsair Produkte die iCUE Software für LINUX. Ich hoffe Ihr könnt mir helfen.
  6. Hi. I know that linux is not officially supported, which is incredibly dissapointing. I dual boot both windows and ubuntu 19.10. my H100i pro XT works fine with windows, but I was curious if there is anything I can do with linux to control the fan curve. I had heard about OpenCorsairLink, which hasn't been updated in months, and does not support the new h100i pro or platinums. It does not detect my AIO, and I doubt that the support will come any time soon as there are open PRs from decemeber that haven't been merged in yet. So I have tried running windows in a VM, and runnine iCUE from there. That does work, but it seems like I need to keep the VM running, as the lighting changes I make don't persist after I make the changes and close the VM. So my question is: is there a way to make the iCUE changes persist after a reboot/poweroff? as I want to be able to turn off the windows VM and keep the fan curve/lighting in linux. Thanks, and please, please, please release linux support. It doesn't need to be anything fancy, CLI will do.
  7. I seem to having some ocassionall I/O errors issues with my NVM pci-e 4 drives (Corsair MP600 on a ASUS Pro WS X570-ACE motherboard) that I've come to determine that could be related to some kernel trim support of NVM drives as reflected on kernel bug: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202665 and here: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/devops-workstation-fixing-nvme-trim-on-linux/148354 Errors like: Feb 7 22:01:13 e20home kernel: [32434.453698] blk_update_request: I/O error, dev nvme1n1, sector 14203336 op 0x3:(DISCARD) flags 0x800 phys_seg 1 prio class 0 It shows up sometimes when deleting or creating partitions and can be forced by executing: fstrim -v /partition_name Anyone with a similar issue? Due to the lack of Linux info on the corsair website can someone clarify: - how to determine my current MP600 firmware - how to update it on Linux? - would that fix the issue at all? Thanks.
  8. Hi All, I have recently installed the Corsair CMW64GX4M4C3200C16 Vengeance RGB PRO 64GB kit into my Ryzen based system. I have only (arch) linux installed due to my work habits. My question is what are my options to control the rgb effect of this RAM? I think the effect is actually very cool, but it is not synced with my motherboard and worst of all it doesn't turn off when my computer is suspended/slept. I think this behavior should not be the default. I wanted 64G of RAM for rendering and compilation tasks, not for a kid's gaming PC! Thank you for any help! thelongdivider
  9. If I'm running Linux as my main operating system, and i have a windows virtual machine on it, can I use the Corsair's Link/iCUE(can't remember what it's called) software to control my fan speeds? Specifically, the ones connected to my Commander Pro, and, possibly, my h100i v2 AIO? Has anyone successfully made the software work under WINE? Thanks! Oh, right, FYI, my system is currently running Windows 10, not Linux. I'm trying to do some research before I make the switch. I did search the web and this forum, but didn't find an answer. Edit: Another thought, I was considering just running the fans off of my motherboard, but I have a 1000D case. In the long run, I can see needing to use all 18 fan mounts if the plans I have work out. I'm not sure if running 18 fans through the motherboard could possible damage it or not....
  10. I'm considering getting a Commander Pro for my upcoming build. However, I might want to dual-boot with Windows+Linux in the future. I understand that there is no official support for iCUE under Linux, but does the CoPro have internal memory to save the fan curves (and maybe LED settings?) set in iCUE in Windows? That is, if I use iCUE to tie my case fan speeds to e.g. the CPU/GPU temperature, or a reading of the included temperature probes, will these curves also be applied when booting into a platform without support for iCUE, such as Linux? Also, and this may be an obvious question, but it's not possible to control a fan through the BIOS fan curve, when it's connected to the CoPro, right?
  11. Apparently the pump has 3 modes but Link won't work on Linux (without fanagaling like running wine) so does anyone know if the pump mode can be set from Linux? and if not, does it matter? My concern is that without setting the mode the pump will be running flat out all the time as a default and therefore wear out prematurely. For that matter, what are the pump modes? I'm guessing you see them through the Windows Corsair software.
  12. Being happy with my Corsair RAM & PSU I didn't think twice about getting a Corsair SSD. Too late did I discover the .. err situation w.r.t. upgrading the firmware. Honestly I was shocked. But lemons and lemonade, etc. Thanks to Yellowbeard for this little tidbit: It's nice to know that the firmware is a clean drop from SandForce with nothing special done to it. I was able to confirm that only the header is different between the .vic files as delivered by Corsair and the firmware releases by other SandForce vendors. What this all means is that the firmware updater also is nothing special (cf. again Yellowbeard's comment). I can confirm that the Linux firmware updater for SandForce SSDs is not vendor specific. I know I can't mention anyone by name, so I'll just mention that Wikipedia has a nice list of SSDs with the SF controller. A number of those do distribute the Linux updater (sadly not our Corsair...) For reference: I flashed a 60GB Force 3 SSD from fw ver 1.3.3 to 5.03 using Updater version under Kubuntu 12.04 64-bit and it couldn't have been easier. No mucking with boot disks, Windows, or other nuisances. I noted that more than one vendor is distributing that exact version of the Updater so really it doesn't matter where you get it from. Hopefully Mac users can benefit from this information as well.
  13. You might notice on ckb's webpage that it hasn't been updated in AGES. As a result, some guys gathered together to make a fork called ckb-next. It is located here (https://github.com/mattanger/ckb-next). It's still pretty newish at the moment, and don't expect too many changes over ckb at the moment, but hopefully (if the developer/maintainer for ckb doesn't come back) this project will get more attention and we can still have healthy cross-platform support for Corsair products. :D:
  14. I want to monitor the state of power supply block in Linux. I need to understand which open source software can I use for this. I am interesting in temperature, noise level (or FAN SPEED instead of noise level, but this doesnt show the degradation of fan motor until full stop). I want to see the graph of temperature for last day, for any month in a year, and so on. I did the search but not found the answer to my question. I will never use closed source propiertary software (my religion prohibits this). So I want to know how to compile kernel, which modules I need, how that module interact with user space programs and which user space programs available (for X11-Server and for Wayland desktops, Gtk and Qt frameworks). UPD: see also http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?p=663107 https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTgyMDc
  15. Guten Tag liebes Corsair-Forum, ich nutze seit einer Weile die oben genannte Tastatur K70 RGB LUX und habe in Windows 10 auch kaum Beanstandungen. *Auch über das Flackern einzelner Tasten bei dynamischen Beleuchtungsszenarien kann ich hinweg sehen. (Edit: Flackern ist nach dem Upgrade auf die neue Firmware + iCue Software nicht mehr vorhanden!) Da ich aber auch ein Dualboot mit Ubuntu (Mate) 16.04.3 LTS nutze, habe ich dort die Erfahrung gemacht, dass die Tastatur im Bootloader (Grub 2) - ebenso wie im UEFI - zwar wie gewohnt funktioniert. Sobald aber der Authentifizierungsbildschirm (Passwortabfrage) vom OS kommt, wird die Tastatur fast immer nicht erkannt. Erst wenn ich die Tastatur heraus ziehe, um sie dann wieder einzustecken, findet sie Ubuntu in den meisten Fällen wieder. Ich habe ein paar Dinge bereits ohne nachhaltigen Erfolg getestet: - Die quirks 0x20000000 sowie 0x400 und 0x8: 0x20000000 hat zu Beginn nach komplettem Kaltstart (Rechner für >halbe Minute komplett vom Netz nehmen) gewirkt. (bei Neustarts nicht) Die anderen beiden hatten mMn jedoch keine Auswirkung. (Jedenfalls ergab sich an dem Problem dadurch keine Verbesserung) - Das Gerät per usbreset.c (aus ubuntuusers wiki) rücksetzen hatte ebenso keine Auswirkung. - Die Dampfhammer-Methode "rc.local"-script zum deaktivieren und aktiveren des xhci controllers hat (ich glaube) 3 mal funktioniert. Danach war die Tastatur wieder vollständig deaktiviert und ab und an wurden nach einem Neustart Mausklicks vervielfacht. Die Tastatur leuchtet zumeist, schaltet sich aber mitunter auch nach ein paar Minuten ab, wenn die Tasten nicht reagieren - sie also nicht erkannt wurde. Ich nutze auch im OS den ckb-next Treiber in neuester Version und die laut CUE (Windows) neueste Firmware. Ich habe auch ein Log des Kernels erstellt, weiß aber nicht, wie ich es hier einbinden soll. Vielen Dank an alle, die sich mir und meinem Problem annehmen wollen. Grüße Fe_Lix
  16. I have a 330R Blackout edition case with a TUF Z270 Mark 1 motherboard and installed Manjaro 64bit in it. Everything is working excellently except I don't have sound coming out of the front panel headphone jack. Sound is coming out of the back IO panel, however, and whenever I insert a headphone on the front panel, the sound from the back stops meaning the system recognises that a headphone has been attached. My suspicion is this is a driver issue. As this is Linux, I can't install the Realtek audio driver that comes with the motherboard CD, or the Realtex Sound Manager. Any solution, particularly from Linux users?
  17. Hi everyone. I've been reading a lot about H100i v2 and Linux compatibility issues. I also understand the directions posted by Greybeard from Corsair on the first fixed thread. I know that in some cases the pump isn't running at an adequate speed (some people say the default speed is the slower possible). Since us, the Linux users, can't install Corsair Link the configuration is limited. I understand that in some cases the motherboard model can help to mitigate some issues and this is why I created this thread, to ask what would you recommend in the cases I will present. I decided that since the Linux support is limited I won't use at the moment some scripts or implementations published on different forums and therefor I won't use the Corsair Link Cable. Option 1: Asus Maximus IX Code and similar motherboards have a set of 7 - 9 headers to connect all thing related to cooling. See image below. http://i.imgur.com/J0V6DbX.jpg The first option is follow the user's manual and connect the pump directly to the CPU_FAN (Q-Fan Controlled) header and the fans to the two connectors coming off the pump. In this case I think the pump speed will depend on the CPU temperature and fans will run at a constant speed (determined by what? default speed?) Is that correct? Following the instructions here I would configure full voltage from the BIOS to CPU_FAN. Option 2: Taking into consideration the information in the image below: http://i.imgur.com/vfz5X2D.jpg What about connecting the pump to the AIO_PUMP header and the fans directly to the two connectors coming off the pump? Since the default speed in that header is "Full speed" will the pump run always at max speed and the fans at the same default speed of option 1? In that case we will probable get a boot warning, depends on the motherboard and BIOS (no CPU_FAN connected). Option 3: What about connecting the pump to AIO_PUMP and the two fans directly to the CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT? In that case we won't get a boot warning and the pump will work at full speed and the fans will run at variable speeds depending on the CPU temp. Is that correct? Remember that CHA_FAN's and CPU_FAN and OPT headers can be configure from the BIOS. What other ideas do you have? Maybe connect the the pump to a CHA_FAN header? What is the best option? Thank you very much for your help. Sorry for the grammar and other mistakes, English isn't my native language.
  18. I've written a program in Qt/C++ that will change the k40 backlight colours. It will pop up a colour wheel dialogue where a colour can be selected. It also has shortcut buttons for favourite colours. There are more features, like pulsing, but this is a work in progress and not really sure where I'm going with it. The original purpose was only to be able to change the current keyboard colour as I couldn't find any Linux support to change it from the default 'cherry' red. The code is based on k4-set-colour by Clément Vuchener. The source is at https://github.com/bennyPerth/Corsair-K40-colours. It requires Qt to compile and run it. There is an executabe in the build folder. The program will only work in supervisor mode as it requires write access to the USB device nodes.
