TUXEDO Computers kernel module drivers for keyboard, keyboard backlight & general hardware I/O using the SysFS interface (since version 3.2.0)


Modules included in this package

  • tuxedo-keyboard
  • tuxedo-io
  • clevo-wmi
  • clevo-acpi
  • uniwill-wmi

Building and Install


  • make
  • gcc or clang
  • linux-headers
  • dkms (Only when using this module with DKMS functionality)

Warning when installing the module:

Use either method only. Do not combine installation methods, such as starting with the build step below and proceeding to use the same build artifacts with the DKMS module. Otherwise the module built via dkms will fail to load with an exec_format error on newer kernels due to a mismatched version magic.

This is why the DKMS build step begins with a make clean step.

For convenience, on platforms where DKMS is in use, skip to the DKMS section directly.

Clone the Git Repo:

git clone

cd tuxedo-keyboard

git checkout release

Build the Module:

make clean && make

The DKMS route:

Add as DKMS Module:

Install the Module:

make clean

sudo make dkmsinstall

Load the Module with modprobe:

modprobe tuxedo_keyboard


sudo modprobe tuxedo_keyboard

You might also want to activate tuxedo_io module the same way if you are using TCC.

Uninstalling the DKMS module:

Remove the DKMS module and source:

sudo make dkmsremove

sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/tuxedo_keyboard.conf



modprobe tuxedo_keyboard

Load the Module on boot:

If a module is relevant it will be loaded automatically on boot. If it is not loaded after a reboot, it most likely means that it is not needed.

Add Module to /etc/modules

sudo su

echo tuxedo_keyboard >> /etc/modules
