    Hi H15.

    It's forum policy to wait 24 hours before bumping your thread, the people who have the answers you're looking for may be on the other side of the planet.


    Anyway, I've always used Logitech controllers on my machine as they've worked out of the box without needing to install any software.

    That depends on which product you're talking about of course
    Logitech STILL doesn't publish its remapping software for Linux (it does for OSX), so I suggest testing before buying, because not every feature of every controller will work in Linux.

    maybe you should ask in Flight gear forums. plenty of people there use joystick for that simulation.
