    Phoronix: X.Org Joystick Driver Support Has Been Improving

    This morning there was a talk at XDC2012 about the not often spoken of xf86-input-joystick driver for providing enhanced joystick device support on X.Org...

      Force feedback

      Does it support force feedback?

      Also, if I have a joystick, how do I make it work?
      Let's say its a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi joystick.
      Does it use a general driver or protocol, or does it need a custom driver or daemon or server?

        It does.

        I have written a program to enumerate amd configure usb joysticks on Linux. It does not not support force feedback - sorry.
        Basically it uses the js device files to interface with the usb joysticks.
        It also employs Qt and a bit of C++11, oh and threading.

        My purpose was to learn a bit of Qt, C++11 and threading, not to mention Linux, and to have a useful bit of software on my machine to calibrate my joysticks. It can save and load joystick configuration data.

        Yes, the code is not brilliant and being a hypocritical software engineer, it is not well documented.

        I hope you may find it instructive.
