AntiMicro 2.6 Yields Greater Compatibility For Gamepads On Linux
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 20 September 2014 at 03:59 AM EDT. 6 Comments
Released this week was a new update to AntiMicro, the GUI program for mapping keyboard keys and mouse controls to a gamepad, which is useful for games without any gamepad (or inadequate) support.

AntiMicro continues to be GPLv3 licensed and works not only on Linux but also modern versions of Windows for mapping keyboard/mouse controls to a gamepad. The Linux support though remains dependent upon an X.Org Server and its libraries.

AntiMicro 2.6 features two new turbo modes, a Russian translation of the software, experimental UInput support, and a variety of other changes. See the AntiMicro 2.6 changes via the change-log.

More information on this open-source gamepad program can be found via GitHub.
