Can you explain bboy8012 how you got it working? I'm coming across what seems to be the same problem.
My joystick is a Logitech Attack 3 which is USB. There's a testimonial that this joystick works (http://mail.flightgear.org/pipermail...ch/010740.html
which is one reason why I got it, but that doesn't seem to help me with getting it to communicate with my computer.
I'm also working with http://www.antlinux.com/pmwiki/pmwik...roubleshooting
as a reference but am not having any luck getting it to work with that either. I have no experience in loading modules so that might be part of the problem.
'lsmod | grep input' returns nothing so I try as root
'modprobe input' which replies: "FATAL: Module input not found."
However, 'ls /lib/modules/2.4.27-2-386/kernel/drivers/input/input.o' replies that input.o does in fact exist at that location. I get the same error for usb_uhci, in fact it's identical to what bboy8012 has above, except without the typo: "FATAL: Module usb_uhci not found."
For some reason 'modprobe joydev' returns no such error, in fact it's kind of bothersome that 'modprobe --verbose joydev' finishes instantly and prints nothing to the screen.
For the heck of it I also tried just rebooting the computer to see if it would detect it then, but no such luck.
I have tried
'cat /dev/input/js0' but get the reply:
"cat: /dev/input/js0: No such device".
The file /dev/input/js0 definitely does exist on my system though.
Also I have the package 'joystick' installed and
'jstest --normal /dev/input/js0' tells me
"jstest: No such device"
I'm under the impression that I'm just missing something basic but after quite a bit of searching through the web and through "Running Linux" I honestly haven't found it.
My system: Averatec 3360-EG1 laptop, 1.6 GHz centrino, 512 MB
debian stable minimum install with fvwm window manager
