Thread: Corsair Keyboards

  1. #1

    Question Corsair Keyboards

    hello, on 2015 I started a thread asking if any had any experience with Corsair keyboards (The Vengeance series to be specific). I got no responses. So far, I have the saem results searching online, some reviews says the k70 works well with minor quirks (caps lock or num lock lights not turning on) and other say it's too problematic and to avoid them.
    And there's that open source driver for controlling the lights.
    So.. any change ? anybody has used one of those gaming keyboards with Suse ?

    Thanks, that's the open source driver I mentioned. for the lights, but what about normal functionality, like 'plug and play' for normal keyboard functions. For example, during an OS installation/upgrade, do you have to use a generic keyboard then plug in the corsair ?

    Hi
    I don't see why it wouldn't work OTB as a standard keyboard...

    ok, I got the keyboard.

    Very happy with it, it was plug and play all keys are working, multimedia, cap locks, profiles etc.. I haven't test the driver yet, I may later when I play my MMOs games.

    I was a little scare due to some reports of troubles and annoyances with Corsair Keyboards but it all works fine.

    I'll try the G1..G6 keys later, to set them up with my Steam games.
