alternatively 'polychromatic' for gnome shell toolbar, 


       "From the RPM Repository

        Open the terminal and type these commands:

            sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/hardware:razer/Fedora_25/hardware:razer.repo
            sudo dnf install openrazer-meta kernel-devel

        Due to this bug, kernel-devel needs to be installed explicitly.

        After the drivers are installed, please restart the computer."
