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.
