    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    For RGB RAM control you will need a working SMBus/I2C driver for your chipset. There are VoodooSMBus and VoodooI2C but they do not expose control to userspace, so it isn't possible to write a userspace app that can control the devices. If either project adds a userspace access module, we can...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    Yeah, I figure it would be a lot easier with a Core i7 7700k or some other Core i-series CPU but right now any compatible CPU is rather expensive on eBay so I just want to stick with my Pentium if possible.

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    That's what I tried the other night and I couldn't get it to boot, but I didn't spend a ton of time and it was almost midnight when I started. I need to take another look at it. My problem seems to be the Pentium G4400 CPU I'm trying to use more than the board. I got the board second-hand and...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    Unfortunately no news on SMBus RGB yet. I can't test this on a real Mac and I've been having trouble getting Hackintosh set up on the ASUS Intel board I have (Z270 PRIME).

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    I got the Intel pipeline build working. I ended up setting up a second Homebrew installation in "Rosetta Terminal" and then reconfiguring the make files a bit to check the architecture to determine the Homebrew library path. It uses /opt/homebrew on ARM and /usr/local/lib on Intel. I've...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    If you want to try, the latest binaries are here: https://gitlab.com/CalcProgrammer1/OpenRGB/-/pipelines/latest I'm building using qmake from homebrew. It clearly says arm64 in the build output so I don't think it is universal. I'm not sure what flags/compiler settings I'd need to set to...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    Since all my posts with Google Drive links were held for moderation and then disappeared without a trace, go to the OpenRGB GitLab page and you can find builds in the pinned MacOS issue under the issues list. I also just added MacOS CI so pipeline MacOS builds will automatically be created...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    I just started up my Hackintosh setup on my Razer Blade Pro 2017 again to see if OpenRGB is still building on MacOS. It is! I was able to build the master branch just fine, and my Razer devices are working now because I'm moving away from depending on OpenRazer. I recently ported the...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    90% of RGB products use a USB connection. The real Apple hardware has USB ports, so plenty of RGB devices can be connected. Keyboards, mice, gamepads, ARGB controllers, headsets, accessories, and more can all be tested on the real deal. As long as MacOS has hidapi support, all the USB-based...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    The master branch of OpenRGB should build with MacOS, but I haven't tested it in a while. I don't have a very suitable system for Hackintosh apparently, and the experience developing on it is dreadful. I am not really a MacOS fan but I'm intrigued by the Apple M1 chip, and now that Linux is...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    You need to install hidapi, I think I used homebrew to install it. Try "brew install hidapi"? It's been a few months since I setup the MacOS build environment. How are builds usually distributed for MacOS? I'm not sure how to package a build.

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    I pushed a change to OpenRGB today that gets the master branch building on MacOS. Please test if you can. Still no SMBus, but I think all USB HID devices should be supported. It may still need some tweaking.

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    Just rebased my macos_devel branch again. Pretty much all USB devices are building now, and a lot of them have been migrated to hidapi to hopefully work on MacOS now. Serial port devices and SMBus devices are still not working. It also seems some hidapi devices aren't being detected, such as...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    It should be supported in master. You may have to create a udev rule for it or run the OpenRGB app as root in order to have the correct USB permissions. I've just rebased the macos_devel branch to the latest master. I started pushing some MacOS specific project configuration to master, though...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    It's not enabled in the macos branch yet, but yes it should work. I have an Aura Core driver based on Will Roberts' rogauracore.

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    You need to install libusb and hidapi with Homebrew.

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    Barely any devices are supported right now, just a handful of keyboards and mice. I haven't started on the SMBus/i2C interface needed for motherboard and RAM.

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    You will have to build it from source right now. If yoy want to do this, set up Qt Creator and check out the macos_devel branch of OpenRGB. You will need libusb and hidapi libraries from Homebrew installed.

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    I got a start on porting OpenRGB. I stripped out the backend stuff and got the UI to start. Now I'm going for USB devices as those shouldn't be too difficult. I discovered that you can't control HID devices using libusb on Mac like you can on Windows and Linux. I installed hidapi and got my...

    ASUS Aura control for RGB lighting with a Hackintosh?

    I'm the lead developer of OpenRGB and I've been following this thread for a while now. I finally got MacOS Catalina set up on one of my test boards, Asus Prime Z270-A. I was able to set up most of my development environment and was able to build my sister project Keyboard Visualizer and run it...
