    Phoronix: X.Org Joystick Driver Support Has Been Improving

    Default 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.
