After having a bit of a hiatus developing the next "major" update to this application, it's time for a very minor release to fix some "paper cuts" in the stable version:
If you installed Polychromatic prior to around September 2017, there's been a bit of re-organisation since then regarding PPAs used for updating the software:
lah7/polychromatichas moved to
lah7/polychromatic-dailyhas moved to
To make the transition:
Open Software & Updates and open the Other Software tab.
Find the "lah7/polychromatic" entry in the list and delete it.
Open the terminal and run:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:polychromatic/stable sudo apt update
This release simply renames and points to the new naming used for the driver/daemon. Previously known as
The version has been bumped to v2.0.0.
Unless you are already using
ppa:openrazer/stable, run these commands to make a clean switch:
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/terrz-ubuntu-razerutils-* sudo apt remove python3-razer razer-daemon razer-doc razer-kernel-modules-dkms sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openrazer/stable sudo apt update sudo apt install polychromatic openrazer-meta
A minor update to address a few issues, particularly after the daemon's last updat which caused a regression for Blade Stealth devices.
The changes are mainly for improved stability until the next major release, which is slowly tugging along.

It's been a quiet couple of weeks, this minor release contains a few small things.
More major improvements still to come!
This is a minor release, with some fixes and new device support.

sync_effects_enabledin daemon's config to be disabled. (#79)
Both the Controller and Tray Applet now synchronise device states, so if you make tweaks in one while the other is running, they'll be reflected without needing to reload.
The tray applet gets a lot of love in this update!
The tray applet use to be responsible for setting an effect, brightness or profile when it first runs. This has been dropped temporarily. It was unreliable, especially as it applied them to the first device.
Rest assured, this feature will be coming back much improved in the next major release.
