ASUS Linux is a suite of tools designed to improve the performance and functionality of ASUS laptops when running Linux. It comes in 2 main parts, asusctl and supergfxctl, the former interacts with the
asus-wmi kernel module to control BIOS level features and the latter is used to control the dedicated GPU in dual GPU systems.
The project is maintained by Luke Jones and is hosted on GitLab.
ASUS Linux can be installed with the following packages :
There is also a custom repository which contains prebuilt binaries available here: Unofficial user repositories#g14.
asusctlAUR is a CLI utility for ASUS ROG & TUF laptop, to name some of the important features it gives users control over:
- Integrated GPU MUX Control
- Keyboard RGB Lighting Profile (but limited compared to the Windows AURA/Armoury Crate)
- Fan Curves
- Battery Charge Limit
- Panel Overdrive
- AniMe Matrix Screens
For usage instructions see asusctl.
supergfxctlAUR is a CLI utility for managing GPU switching functionality on ASUS hybrid laptops, particularly dedicated GPU MUX control.
For usage instructions see supergfxctl.
rog-control-centerAUR is a GUI frontend for asusctl and supergfxctl.
While no longer required to get basic functions working, ASUS Linux optionally offers a custom kernel which includes patches that have been submitted to the mainline kernel already but have not yet been merged.
Install it through the custom repository, the linux-g14AUR and linux-g14-headersAUR packages have not been updated since 2021.
