Looking for RGB keyboard for Linux

Looking for an RGB keyboard for Linux-

I use Linux 99% of the time, Windows some (gaming)-

I need a keyboard that is configurable with the firmware, not software, and will load at the password prompt, not when the desktop is loading-

I looked for a Ducky Shine 5, but I can't find one anywhere, and looked at the IKBC MF-108 RGB, and IKBC F-108 RGB...

I'm thinking about a Ducky Shine 7 when they are released....

Any suggestions of other keyboards that meet the above, or comments about the IKBC and the Ducky?

Thanks!

There's software for Coolermaster MasterKeys line of keyboards, but a lot of the functions can be used without software.

I don't use the software for mine. FN + F1 though F12 can handle most things. About the only thing it can't do is per-key color assigning if you want your keyboard to look like a unicorn vomited all over it, but "normal" affects like breathe/slow transition/ripple/etc are built in to the firmware.

I remember Roccat was helping a person with providing a software and driver for Linux. Maybe look into what that means exactly and how their keyboards work. Hopefully they are saving the configuration in the keyboard itself, just like you want, and in addition you'd get that tool running on Linux to tweak things.

Roccat looks like they have semi-official Linux Support....still the Ducky looks good, but not in stock yet-

The problem is buying a $159-$200 board and only getting a 1-year Warranty....

Oh well-

Thanks deepor!
