Linux version of Ryzen Wraith Prism Lighting Control software?

Recommended Posts

My new build is incredible, with both a CoolMaster case and the Wraith Prism Cooler for my Ryzen 2700X.

 

However, I hate it when my computer looks like a Christmas tree, and I purposefully turn off all LEDs. It seems the only way to turn off the LED on the Wraith Prism cooler is to be on Windows. The problem is that I only have Ubuntu installed. I tried to set up a Windows VM, but the controller doesn't recognize that the device is plugged in. The device has one of the supplied USB connectors connected to the motherboard.

 

Is there any way to install the controller software on Linux? I'd even be happy with a CLI. This is the software I'm referring to: http://www.coolermaster.com/amd-ryzen-wraith-prism-rgb-software/

I need some help with this too. A lot of people I know have been switching over to Linux since windows 10 is so bloated. With proton db being as successful as it has been, Linux is looking way better every day.

Bumping this,

I wish they would add linux support or release the necessary specification for someone to code their own software.

 

I can get the software to install and launch in wine but it fails to see anything plugged into the USB headers.

I got this working in Ubuntu 18.04.

 

- Connected the cooler via the USB header (not the RGB one)

- Installed Wine; emulate Windows 10 in winecfg

- Downloaded Wraith Prism control software (compiled for Win10)

- Tried running it under Wine. Like AaronT, didn't detect the cooler over USB.

- Read on, saw this thread, which raised the possibility Wine didn't have access.

- Figured out which USB devices the Cooler was on (hidraw2, hidraw3, hidraw4):

 dmesg | grep -i 'Cooler Master'

- Opened up perms for those devices:

sudo chmod 666 /dev/hidraw2
sudo chmod 666 /dev/hidraw3
sudo chmod 666 /dev/hidraw4

- Ran control software again. Worked flawlessly.
