Logitech G19 Keyboard [solved]

Post by Baumstark » Thu Dec 17, 2015 12:59 pm

Hey there,

new Linux-Mint user here. I am using Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64bit

Anyone out there with a logitech g19 keyboard, having the LCD/LED working?

Appearently the Gnome 15 Project managed to get both working. Unfortunately the project seems to be inactive these days and a lof of the files are down / not accessible anymore. I managed to download the required deb files from here. However, when I tried to install the first main package, I get an error saying that the required package python-uinput was not installed (I have the requiered python version 2.7 installed). So I went ahead and got the package from here. I think it installed fine, it didn't give me any error messages.

Still when I try to install the gnome15 deb again, it still tells me that the dependency python-uinput is missing.
That's how far I got.

Basically I would just like to get the LED colored keys working, I don't care so much about the LCD screen. So if there is any other method besides gnome15, that's fine too.

I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks in advance :)

Hi "Baumstark"

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum !

It would help to have more specific system setup information, see FYI below.

Gnome15 - linux desktop integration for Logitech G Hardware
https://gnome15.org/

Manual Install from gnome15.org
https://gnome15.org/downloads/manual-install/

To install this, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one:
Create a "tmp" folder in your "/home" folder, if you do not already have one, before continuing these instructions:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install make git build-essential



cd /tmp
git clone https://github.com/Huskynarr/gnome15.git
cd gnome15
./configure
make
sudo make install



Related articles, programs, and posts:

G15daemon (easy install ".deb" file) provides support for the G15 keyboard. Multiple LCD clients are supported with a 'virtual' LCD buffer for applications or libraries, and all keys are usable. Users flip through connected screens with a press of a button.Linux, OS-X & Solaris
https://sourceforge.net/projects/g15dae ... ecommended

* not sure this is still active* Configure Logitech G Series Keyboards In Ubuntu With Gnome15, Now Available In A PPA
http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/configur ... oards.html


FYI: It would help everyone here to have more information about your system's setup: like what edition and version of Linux Mint are you using, Cinnamon, Mate, KDE (my favorite), or Xfce; version 17, 17.1, 17.2, 17.3, or What?; 32-bit or 64-bit? Some more information about your hardware would be useful as well. You can get this information from top of your system menu's Welcome screen, System Information program(s), and the best is by typing in "inxi -Fxz" from a console terminal prompt, which you can then copy and paste back here. This information helps anyone here in this forum to be able to answer any questions you may have better :), thanks. You can even add this information (abbreviated) to your signature using the control panel link in the above left of this forum screen; then when you post a question or reply to one, that info will automatically be there, ex: see mine and others below their posts.

hey phd21, thanks and sorry for not adding any system information! :)

I'm using Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64bit. I will add more information later. I don't have access to the linux machine right now.

wow, quick edit there. thanks a lot! I will try this out later today! :o

thank you very much for your help.

I tried the manual installation before (and to be sure, now again), but at the point "./configure" I just get the error "folder or file not found". I checked that it downloaded correctly and that I was in the right folder etc...
I have a feeling that I'm missing something but I can't quite figure out what... The package git build-essential installed correctly too.

Unfortunately the g15tools/g15daemon only work with the Logitech G15 keyboard. The repository from the last link is appearently not compatible with my version of linux mint. Damn! :?

There seem to be so many ways, yet I can't get any of them to work :)

Hi "Baumstark",

Looks like a really nice keyboard. But, I do not have one, so I cannot install this. I tried to compile it as well, but got the same error...

Have you tried installing the "g15daemon" anyway to see if it would work? You can always remove if it does not...

Yes, I installed the g15daemon, it installed fine but it gave me the error message that there was no supported keyboard found. It had a list with supported keyboards, unfortunately the g19 was not on it :(

Hi "Baumstark",

Did you see these links below, because it does show that the "G19" keyboard is supported (see hardware link below). How to get it to work, I still do not know, perhaps these links may help further that. You can also peruse the forums too.

You might try contacting the developers and maintainers of this as well

Configuring
https://gnome15.org/help-documentation/configuring/

Hardware Support
Model Matrix - Find the drivers that matches your model and look them up in the driver list below.
* it does show the G19 is spported *
https://gnome15.org/help-documentation/ ... e-support/
PyLibG19 is the basis for G19 support in Gnome15. It is mostly based on MultiCoreNop’s’ Logitech-G19-Linux-Daemon which is available from link below, but with a few additions and bug-fixes.

Download the "zip" file to your "tmp" folder and unzip and compile....
https://github.com/MultiCoreNop/Logitec ... nux-Daemon

It is used in two ways. Firstly, the new g19direct driver uses it to do away with the need for g19d. It does however mean you have to make the keyboard’s USB device files writable. Secondly, it is used by g19d which runs as root and so doesn’t need special permissions.
https://gnome15.org/help-documentation/pylibg19/

Pre-requisites
You will need all of these to compile or run G19D. If you use a package for your distribution, these will be downloaded for you. If you wish to compile from source, you will have to obtain and install them yourself. These are in the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)

Python – Programming language. PyLibG19 was developed with Python 2.6 (install "python" and "python3")
Python Image Library – Used for the splash screen. (install "python-pil" and "python3-pil")
PyUSB – Python USB bindings. (install "pyusb")
Help & Documentation - see sub projects at bottom too
https://gnome15.org/help-documentation/


Good Luck and keep us posted on your progress ...

Hope this helps ...

hey phd21,

thanks again very much for your kind help. Unfortunately, all the gnome15.org links give me a 404 error at the moment. Maybe someone is reorganizing the site. I know for a fact that these links were working just a day ago, since I've tried them before.
I think I have tried every script / daemon there is right now. The closest I got was to a short flickering of the keyboard lights and the LCD, just to get an "index out of range" error in the used python script. One automatic "G19 Installer" even wrecked my whole system so I had to reinstall (fortunately I hadn't been too much into personalizing everything). I think the installer wasn't meant to be used with Linux Mint or Ubuntu at all. This has taught me a lesson though, I made a full backup of my linux-mint harddrive this time :D

So I think for now I'll just let it be and check on the gnome15 project from time to time. Hopefully it'll come back alive.

Thank you again for your friendly welcome. Everything is working now except for the G19 keyboard, and so far I am quite happy with Linux Mint and I am having a very good Linux experience :)

Hi "Baumstark",

You are most welcome...

Yesterday, I was on their site and it seemed to be working.

I love Linux Mint and its excellent forum, everyone involved has done a superb job! When I left MS Windows awhile back I was not that familiar with Unix and Linux systems, although very experienced with computers and Ms Windows. After some diligent research and some testing, I found Linux Mint and their wonderful editions, and have been using them happily ever since.

It is rare to have some computer hardware not work, but it does happen. I do think there is a way to get this really nice keyboard's extras features of yours fully, or mostly working, we just have not figured it out yet. The regular basic keyboard functions work don't they? Have you perused their forums and made a forum post, and emailed them about your situation, because if I were you, I would. When I get a chance, I will do the same. Obviously, it would be really beneficial for Logitech to finally start fully supporting Linux and Linux Mint directly because the Linux Mint, and Linux, user base is increasing quickly and will continue to do so. I really like Logitech products and I have been using them for many years, and I have wireless and wired Logitech keyboards and mice, and a webcam, all fully working well using Linux Mint, but not with Logitech's software and drivers.

As for backing up, well that is always a smart move especially before installing system and hardware drivers and or major updates and upgrades. Even though it is hard to crash a system completely where it requires a re-install, it can be done, especially when installing certain hardware drivers and certain software. A lot of people do not realize that even if your system crashes, if you have written down your last steps, and last install instructions, you can usually reverse them from a console terminal prompt, and just reboot to "recovery mode" to get back up and running without a re-install. There are some excellent programs to help protect and recover from this: Timeshift, SystemBack, Backintime, Aptik, and of course a good hard drive image backup program like "Clonezilla Live", and a good external hard drive.

Hope this helps ...

HI "Baumstark",

Okay, I think I have some good information and links for you.

First, I cannot access their main website today either.

But, I did a lot more in-depth research.

Apparently, there has been a lot of movement where these files are stored, websites that are up and down, etc..

I found the files necessary to get this working, I think. But you may have to "trial and error" them to see which will work. I would read all the links below as well before doing anything. In the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM) are "G15" programs which I would install all of those first, then you may only need to install the G19 related libraries, "pylibg19". (the other python programs I mentioned before and "python-evdev" should be installed first). To cover all bases, I would also install the few KDE programs below. Then, I would download and try to compile and install the G15 "master.zip" from here which does contain the "pylibg19" files: https://github.com/achilleas-k/gnome15. Afterwards, restart (reboot). Then, if that doesn't work, I also found 3 articles below where nice users had all the easy to install ".deb" files (15 of them) for this, that they shared (see links below), but no directions on which to install first, so trial and error on that, try largest file first, if necessary...

Personally I would also install the few KDE programs below (unless you are using KDE) as well which will not hurt any linux mint edition, in fact it will enhance it
If you are not using KDE, then install these few programs below in the quote box in blue.
If you're experiencing issues with KDE apps (like Okular, Gwenview, KStars, kdenlive, ..etc) run the following command from your console terminal prompt: (you can copy & paste it too)
Depending on your setup, you might also need to install "KDE-runtime" as well.
sudo apt-get install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins

*** "gnome15 master" is downloadable from the link below ***
https://github.com/achilleas-k/gnome15
A set of tools for configuring the Logitech G15 keyboard. Contains pylibg19, a library providing support for the Logitech G19 until there is kernel support available. It was based "Logitech-G19-Linux-Daemon" [1], the work of "MultiCoreNop" [2].

Hey, I got the same problem. Somewhere out in the ether I found the libraries. I wrapped the deb-packages together as gnome15.tar.bz2. You can download them from here: http://ul.to/89bvcvju

Currently I’m working with elementaryOS (based on Ubuntu) and it works like a charm.

Article 1: Highlights below- the website drivers from "russo79.com" was moved or their site is down, Logitech g19 help - russo79.com/gnome15 is down
* all the gnome 15 easy install ".deb" files from a user in a file called "gnome15_debs.tar.gz", that you can download from the link below.
- it is in French, but I clicked the captcha box on right, enter in the numbers, clicked button below and I was able to download the compressed file containing the G15 ".deb" files.

CMoH/gnome15-overlay - I downloaded this too, not sure you need this, and it is for Linux Gentoo.
https://github.com/CMoH/gnome15-overlay

* Read this * Logitech g19 help - russo79.com/gnome15 is down - has link to download the user's ".deb" files for G15.
I foolishly removed the logitech g-19 trusty-kde-suite which basically entails all the packages in .deb format. I checked my apt-cache but they are not there and the website www russo79 com/gnome15 has been down for over a week. This is their Launchpad page https://launchpad.net/gnome15. Basically, does anyone here have the .deb packages for this keyboard, I would be forever in your debt.

I use Logitech G19 keyboard, G13 Gameboard, G700 and G5 mouse with my Mint 15. With Gnome15 the keyboards work flawless. The G700 mouse I configured in an old XP box. The G700 store up to five profiles, when configured, can be used on any system, driver or not.

Hey phd21,

first of all thank you so much for doing all this research and posting all these links on here. I cannot thank you enough for this.

And now the good news: I got it working!! :mrgreen:

This post did the trick:

With the link provided there, I was able to download and install the full gnome15 package, including all required dependencies. The only module I had to install manually was "python-wnck", but since that is in the repositories, all it took was to install it via terminal.
And now everything works like a charm. I can even use the LCD display, there are various tools for it - some even better than those included in the original windows logitech driver. I am incredibly happy :D

I've included some images, so you can see what the final results look like!
Thank you so much again! Without your help I could not have gotten this to work! I hope you'll have a happy holiday and I wish you a happy new year!

HIi "Baumstark",

You are most welcome!

That's great news, good for you!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday's to you and yours as well!


That is a very cool looking and cool functioning keyboard. You can change the background lighting to you own colors, nice. Looks like you can also choose what is displayed in that little lCD window, and how is that done?

Obviously, there are other people (users) of this and other Logitech G series keyboards that can benefit from this. If you can remember, exactly, what you had to do and which files were downloaded and installed in what order, that would would really help a lot to post that information back here (when you get a chance). Thanks...

And, in the spirit of the season, some animated gif images.
Note: in Firefox 43.x, I can now see these animations without having to click the image, or right clicking to open in a new tab. I do not know if that is because of the forum software update, or Firefox 43.

Re: Logitech G19 Keyboard [solved]

Post by Baumstark » Tue Dec 22, 2015 7:24 am

Ok, so anyone who wants to get their G15/G19 keyboard to work, this is how I did it:

- Download and extract the following package: http://ul.to/89bvcvju
- First install all the python deb-packages "python-libsensors", "python-uinput", etc..
- Install the "libg15" deb
- Then, install the deb with the driver for your keyboard (g15 or g19 driver).
- Now you need one more python module that you have to install via terminal: "python-wnck". It is in the repositories so just open up a terminal and type

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install python-wnck
- After that you can install the deb with the gnome51 main program - "gnome15_0.9.8-0gnome15atrusty1_all"
- Install as many plugins for the LCD as you like (e.g. clock, calendar, weather, background etc). These are all optional, none of these are actually required to get the colored keys working.
- In your menu under "settings" there should now be a new entry called "Logitech G Keyboard Configuration". Launch it and you're ready to go! :)

- If you can't launch the keyboard configuration from the menu, open up a terminal and type "g15-config". It'll try and start the configuration tool, but in the terminal you will see if it gives you an error messages. That's how I found out that I needed "python-wnck".

That's it :)

Hey phd21,

you are right, you can actually choose what is displayed on the LCD. Gnome15 brings various plugins that you can just install as you like (none of them are required, all are optional), so for example you can have either a clock or some system information on your LCD display. Once the plugins are installed, you can configure them with the main configuration tool. You can even have your current desktop wallpaper displayed on the mini LCD screen (I did not find that option in the official logitech drivers for windows :D ). I've added a picture of the plugin configuration menu and some examples of what you can do with them :)

Hi "Baumstark",

Nicely done, thank you. I'm sure this post will help others even more so now ...

Like I said before, that is a cool keyboard you have there ...

Again, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas !!

Hi "alex57130",

You can try contacting the other forum user "Baumstark" to get the files. I'm pretty sure they have that backed up. Perhaps they can email that to you or upload that into this forum, or upload it to a cloud provider and then provide people here a "shared link" to those files in an archive (.zip, .arc, .7z) from a cloud storage provider like: "pCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, Mega.nz".

Since I do not have that keyboard or one like it, although I would like one, I doubt that I retained those files from when I was helping this user. But, I will check to see if I do.

Hope this helps ...

Re: Logitech G19 Keyboard [solved]

Hi "alex57130", or Anyone Else Interested in this,

I found a folder called "gnome15" which I archived into a file called "gnome15_12-2015_phd21.20160829.204459.7z". I think this has all the necessary files for setting up the keyboard. I could not find the "gnome15.tar.bz2" from the one link, but this may be the contents of that folder. I also saved that archive file, and all the files from this link below, and pdf files of this post and other articles into another archive folder called "Logitech_Gnome15.20160829.210407.7z" which I have then uploaded to a Google Drive (cloud storage) for anyone to use, see link below.
Gnome15 Russo79 project site offline, Posted on December 24, 2014
At the moment the server from Russo79 (https://projects.russo79.com/projects/gnome15) for the gnome15 project is offline.That’s why I decided to publish and upload the gnome15 files I’ve found. I hope its useful for somebody…

Download link to all the Gnome15 files and information I could find. (appx: 28.1 mb)
Just click the link below, then click the download arrow button in the upper right.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7SC- ... 2UxbGpuTXc

Just save this archive file into your "/Downloads" folder, and right click it and extract here autodetect sub-folders. Remember to do the same process to extract the contents of the other archive file that is in this folder.

By following the instructions in this post, and using the files from the archives, you should be able to get it working.

Perhaps you will hear from user "Baumstark" as well.

Hope this helps ...
