Generally speaking gaming Hardware is almost never supported by manufacturers on the Linux OS and they only usually create drivers for the Windows platform..

I assume that you can see the device under /dev/js0 or whatever and the reason you are trying to get this working is because you want to game on Linux (maybe using Wine)?

However you could try this command to ensure that all the configuration software is installed:

sudo apt-get install joystick

Also you may want to look at this link..
Then report back to see if it recognizes your driving wheel :) ..

Hope this Helps!
