How to activate on-board profile (for key customization) without Synapse

    I have a Razer Huntsman Mini that I'm using both on Windows and Linux.

    Since there's no Linux support, I was expecting that I could program an on-board profile on Windows and use that on Linux, but I don't know how to activate it.

    On Windows Synapse, I've done a few minor customizations (mapped the right alt as hypershift button and a few macros for buttons not used in Hypershfit mode) and I have stored these into the 'red' on-board memory.

    When I boot Windows, Synapse starts and everything is fine, but on Linux, I just get the default behavior.

    Is there a key-combination I need to press to activate the profile?

    BTW: I've read that you need Synapse for some fo the lighthing, but I'm not interested in that, I do want the keyboard customization though.

    Click on the SD Card memory icon next to the profile selector in Synapse 3. Then a panel should appear on the right side. Drag and drop your profile into onboard memory.

    PS. Some functions like running application etc. are not available without synapse, but there will be an information under the function, if the Synapse is required.

    For linux there is a great project like Open Razer: https://openrazer.github.io
    As far as I know - currently there's no support for Huntsman Mini, but keep checking it frequently - new devices are still added.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The profile is indeed stored in the first onboard memory slot. And none of the functions I'm using had that "synapse required" exclemation mark.

    I just don't know how to activate the profile without Synapse. Or how it can be activated by default.

    I have the exact same questions as pbackx.
    Hope we get some support soon!
