Joystick Conflicts



  • @Halvhjearne

    Deffo ran update-grub from /usr/sbin/, tried it again and the quirks are still null.

    It's a joystick and buttons connected to a little encoder, not sure of the make or model because it isn't branded. I may just end up buying another one ;(



  • @Foxsec

    not sure how it wouldnt work, except if you forgot to run update-grub or restart.

    lsusb or usb-devices commands can usually give you a clue to the make and model name.

    you didnt answer what happends when you run jstest?
    on ubuntu you can get a version with gui called jstest-gtk



  • @Halvhjearne

    Just lists it as twin usb joystick. I can copy and paste all of the info from it if that helps?

    Did a jstest-gtk and it shows that the joysticks work but it picks up both players as player 1.



  • @Foxsec

    not sure what you are doing wrong, the quirks should be added, even if the joystick is not connected.
    it does sounds like its a clone of the xin-mo, so im guessing it should work.

    You can check that the quirks have been added to the boot command line by running

    cat /proc/cmdline
    

    Can you copy the output of the command and post it here ? Alternatively, as @Halvhjearne mentioned, try using modprobe to apply the options from a command line:

    rmmod usbhid && modprobe usbhid quirks=0x0810:0xe001:0x040
    


  • rmmod: ERROR: ../libkmod/libkmod-module.c:793 kmod_module_remove_module() could not remove 'usbhid': Operation not permitted
    rmmod: ERROR: could not remove module usbhid: Operation not permitted
    

    Is what I get when I run the rrmod command?

    And I get the below when I type the cmdline in

    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.0.0-23-generic root=UUID=9c1664a3-6dc6-4ad4-afc8-334c7e46342b ro quiet splash vt.handoff=1
    

    Think it's worth just getting another encoder so I'll have one for each joystick? seems like it just doesn't want to work, thanks a lot for you help btw guys, really appreciate it.

    Yeah, forgot about that. Prefix the commands with sudo:

    sudo rmmod usbhid && sudo modprobe usbhid quirks=0x0810:0xe001:0x040
    

    And I get the below when I type the cmdline in

    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.0.0-23-generic root=UUID=9c1664a3-6dc6-4ad4-afc8-334c7e46342b ro quiet splash vt.handoff=1
    

    That means your Grub modifications have not added the usbquirks necessary for the joystick.

    No, you're very close of making this one work, so there's no need to get another one.

    are you sure you edited the line correctly in /etc/default/grub and ran update-grub?

    perhaps show us the content of it

    @Halvhjearne

    I was writing down every step and making a code box for everything that came up and I tried that rmmod that Mitu suggested and i checked the quirks file after and it worked!

    Both set of joysticks and buttons are now configured

    Thanks so much for your help guys, really really appreciate it :)

    thats wierd, for me it would not work with modprobe and i remember reading somewhere that it was supposedly blocked, but whatever.

    atleast it works for you now.
