Hi all.

I am new to Linux and finding it very good.

I have a slight issue with my input devices though. Namely my throttle and rudder pedal controlllers. I have succesfully used the joystick natively in flight gear and in Wine with Forgotten Battles but the rudder pedals and throttle are not working in either. Can somebody please tell me how I can check whether they have been regognised and working in Ubuntu or how to get them to work. I am using Intrepid.

Many thanks.

Best regards.

Tim

Ok making some progress!

My joystick is working by default no problems there. I have discovered that if I unplug the rudder pedals and throttle and plug them back in again they work fine until I reboot.

any ideas please?

Cheers

Tim
