SteelSeries Arctis 5 and 7 now supported by Ubuntu!

Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic), Linux Mint 19 and newer releases now officially support the SteelSeries Arctis 5 and 7.

On bionic, the pulseaudio package should at least be updated to 11.1-1ubuntu7.2 to add support for it. Be sure to remove the deb I've created before updating, to prevent a conflict:

dpkg --remove pulseaudio-steelseries-arctis-5

Here is the Launchpad bug which caused the Arctis profiles to be added: #1758736

Please note that the newer 2019 model of the Arctis is not supported, but you can create the file /lib/udev/rules.d/91-pulseaudio-steelseries-arctis-5.rules with the following content to enable support:

ATTRS{idVendor}=="1038", ATTRS{idProduct}=="12aa", ENV{PULSE_PROFILE_SET}="steelseries-arctis-5-usb-audio.conf"
