Please port to Linux!
It wouldn't be that hard. You're ignoring a potentially huge influx of customers that Linux support would bring. It already seems like a great software, and I can imagine only that a Linux version would be even greater. Thanks.
look at this https://medium.com/@leinardi/how-to-control-a-nzxt-kraken-from-linux-with-a-gui-93367113f2f5!!
im using it on Ubuntu 18.04 and work perfectly.
Im sure NZXT will never help us, the are interested just in sell their producs, not about the customers.
Maybe this is worth a try?
can i get a cli app for linux to monitor and set set fan/pump settings? let the community build the gui
I agree. You NEED either to port CAM to Linux or let Linux community do it for you, since you are claiming that you don't have the resources. There are enough of us, who use NZXT products in Linux based systems.
Anyone know of an existing open source solution for Linux and/or Windows? While the existing CAM software is ok, seems to be buggy at best and definitely buggy (ie crappy) from the mobile app side.

100% agree. I use Windows for the few applications that necessitate it, but I spend 90% of my time in Linux, and the NZXT Kraken x62 is constantly running too loud with no real way of changing it without setting a constant fan speed (aka suicide when the threadripper gets cranking). Seeing - from the latest software - that you need a complete rewrite anyway, you might as well do it with cross-platform in mind. Or at least publish the API and let the linux community do it for you. It is hardly an unpopular request.

I have just ordered a H700i case for my new build (that will only run Linux, and I would really like this too! :)

Another Linux user here. It would be very much appreciated if you ported CAM to Linux so we could take better control of our cooler.

Really would be awesome to get something at least, I understand that making a full fledged application would be a lot, but even something like a command line program with a simple "hue fading 0000FF 00FF00" type thing in the mean time would be great.
Just so I can get some use out of it when I'm in Linux, which is 90% of the time.
Otherwise I need to do a whole Arduino thing, and since I have the controller, that would be really bleak.
Well with the pending changes to microsofts updates and support for windows 7/8.1 I'm aiming to make a full move to linux also notice more games are available for linux through steam. Well considering I run a kraken I would really like to control and monitor my kraken through linux as well. Also more and more people seem to switch to ubuntu/linux mint.
Would you please port drivers/software for linux as well?
I mean nvidia has released nice drivers for linux to boot.
Cheers from an avid nzxt fan!

Either that or make the API public, and we can band together and build an open source version that work across all platforms - Linux and more besides :)
I would think millions....

Please make CAM compatible with Linux (Ubuntu at least). This isn't brain surgery, you can do it! We believe in you! We're begging to give you our money! Are you man enough to take it?
Reposting http://camfeedback.nzxt.com/forums/252939-ideas/suggestions/10555056-allow-configuring-the-controllers-on-linux that has been closed since support asked me to.
CAM is currently not supported on Linux. The means that my config is running much louder than it needs since I can't lower the speed of the fans via my GRID+
Porting CAM over (.net can run on Linux I believe) would be nice, but here are other decent alternatives:
- Simple command line interface to push predefined profiles to the GRID+
The device is connected via USB, I believe there should not be significant changes with Windows to send the configuration.
- Server with no UI, we can use mobile devices and/or command line to see the data and send changes.
Gaming oriented software come more and more to Linux, with Steam, Nvidia drivers etc being available. Ubuntu 64bits would at least cover a nice proportion of users.
Making simple command line configuration tools available would allow others to build upon them for UI and more complex usage for example, taking care of that until you want to invest in a complete CAM version for Linux.
