Gaming forum


Can't seem to find a gaming forum so I will ask here...

I have scored a Logitech Driving Force car racing console, complete with steering wheel and pedal unit, and I want to use it with a linux car racing game or simulator. Can someone advise first off whats the best car racing app, and how to install it into LinuxLite, or PcLos, Ubuntu 17.04.

I have found out it doesn't work with my xbox (only play-station consoles)It looks like a pretty good console, love to get it going with any Linux car racing game or sim.

ok... cool. Thanks for the direction. I did install Torcs and SuperTuxKart successfully, though still can't get either application to recognize the 'Logitech Driving Force G29 (Playstation 2 compatible) console. I have just downloaded some PS2 emulator stuff I found in the repo, so I will keep playing... I say playing because Linux is so much fun!

Also when I usb in the console, it takes over my mouse straight away and sends my mouse icon to the bottom of the screen, without even running any game.
