Razer Nostromo Linux Drivers 1.0

May 2nd, 2012 by Crusader

The Razer Nostromo is a gaming mini-keyboard that provides remapping of keys to any keyboard or mouse event. This is great; however, the drivers are only available for OSX and Windows. Not anymore, the jnostromo project aims to provide GNU/Linux drivers that provides E-Sport legal keymappings for Linux gamers everywhere. The feature set is similar to the official drivers with the elimination of macro’s.

Note, 32-bit drivers will be available in up-coming releases. Also, the configuration gui is cross platform capable. So check it out!

Thanks Conzar!

    I had one of the original nostromos. The key action was terrible, the buttons were bad as well. Horrible for gaming. I never did try one of the newer ones.

    Hi bnoslen. I haven’t used the previous versions of the nostromo (from Belkin), but I think the new nostromo’s keys feel fine for me. I have to note, that I am not into using mechanical switched keyboards so my understanding of what feels “right” might differ. I will say that I really like the ergonomic design and that my hand fits comfortably on the keyboard.

    Sweet! I have been looking for something like this. Hopefully the 32bit drivers aren’t too far away. I can’t wait to try it out.

    @f16falcon4 I’ve recently released version 1.3.1 which includes 32-bit support!

    I have an Imperator and a Lycosa. I asked Razer about Linux drivers and they said ‘no chance’. So, if you want some testing then I can help. If you write the drivers to the point that you are implementing the macros then imho you should make a small charge.
