       openrazer-daemon - Daemon to manage Razer devices in userspace


       openrazer-daemon [options...]


       openrazer-daemon is a userspace service which is designed to be an intermediary between
       userspace programs and the Razer drivers. It will provide some higher level functions to
       allow similar operation to the Windows Razer Synapse program. This service is designed to
       be started by xdg-autostart as a session service.

       The service has the functionality to sync effects between multiple devices, perform on-
       the-fly macro recording and playback and reimplements the FN+Keys logic so they work when
       macro_keys are enabled. The service can also perform various ripple effects and turn off
       the devices when the screensaver is active.

       Note, that all paths shown as defaults, eg ~/.local/share/ or ~/.config/ can be changed
       with XDG Base Directory specification variables: $XDG_CONFIG_HOME, $XDG_DATA_HOME and


       -v, --verbose
           Enable logging of DEBUG messages.

       -F, --foreground
           Run the daemon in the foreground and don't fork. This also enables sending the log
           output to stdout (in addition to the log file).

       -r, --respawn
           Stop any running daemon first (if one is running) before starting.

       -s, --stop
           Gracefully stop the running daemon.

           Allow the daemon to be started as root.

           Specifies the location of the config file. If this is not provided it will default to
           ~/.config/openrazer/razer.conf and create it if needed from the example config.

           Specifies the location of the persistence file. This will be created if non-existent.
           This file will store device states so they persist between reboots.

           Tells the daemon what directory is its run directory, the directory it will change to
           once started. It will default to $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR, if not set it falls back to

           This argument decides where the log directory will be, the daemon itself will handle
           log rotation as it's a user session service. The daemon will default to
           ~/.local/share/openrazer/logs/ for its log directory.

           If provided the daemon will operate in test-driver mode in which it exposes devices
           that aren't physically connected. Use scripts/ or
           scripts/ from the source repository to create the directory
