OpenRGB is an essential application for managing your RGB appliances. This guide will help you install the Flatpak and AppImage of OpenRGB correctly.



  • Flatpak: You can find out how to install it here.

Installing OpenRGB

You can install OpenRGB from the “Gnome Software” application. Alternatively, you can install it from the command line with the following command:-

flatpak install flathub org.openrgb.OpenRGB



AppImage Support: If you have enabled AppImage in the “First Setup” when installing Vanilla OS, this step isn’t necessary.

If you haven’t enabled AppImages, run the following command:-

sudo abroot exec apt install libfuse2

After the successful installation, reboot your system. You can do this by typing reboot.

Installing OpenRGB

Install “Linux 64-bit” from the “Linux Binaries (AppImage)” section here.

Go to the directory where the AppImage is installed and make it an executable with the following commands:-

cd ~/Downloads/
chmod +x <appimage-filename>

Setting Up UDEV Rules

For the application to function, add UDEV rules to your system.

First, install the UDEV rules by clicking here.

After downloading the UDEV rules, you need to move them to the correct directory with the following command:-

sudo mv ~/Downloads/60-openrgb.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/

After moving the UDEV rules, you need to reload the rules by running the following command:-

sudo udevadm control --reload-rules && sudo udevadm trigger

After reloading the rules, OpenRGB works correctly.
