Free software for high end Logitech keyboards?

I just got a good offer (from a friend who sells this stuff) to buy a brand new Logitech G915 keyboard. It’s a very nice keyboard, wireless, mechanical switches, metal body. I typed on it for a while, very comfy.

Now, it is well-known that these keyboards come with π–†π–‡π–˜π–”π–‘π–šπ–™π–Šπ–‘π–ž π–•π–—π–”π–•π–—π–Žπ–Šπ–™π–†π–—π–ž software that only runs on windoze and mc and that this software does not exist for GNU/Linux. I’m happy it does not, 'tis utter crap.

However, if I purchase this nice keyboard, what are my options on Linux?

I don’t particularly care about the RGB :rainbow: nonsense, but I would like to be able to program the macro keys and take advantage of all the features this keyboard offers. Even if $200 is a great price for it, it is not a cheap keyboard, so I’d like to hear from someone who owns it or something similar…

You could try to reverse-engeneer the usb communication - example link.

Or this may be of some help but it looks to focus mainly on RGB - link.

Or you could ask Logitech nicely to release the documentation? What is the chance of that? :laughing:
