    also had to add my controller to the .cpp file. it was 045e:028f, so you can add it to future additions

    I get these errors:

    Code:
    joshua@joshua-linuxlaptop:~/tmp/xboxdrv-linux-0.2$ sudo ./xboxdrv --wid 1

    Yeah, that's a similar error to mine. On the bottom of the last page here.

    Yeah, I saw that. I'm also using Hardy and with a wireless remote. I wonder if that's what the problem could be. Hmm. I'd really like to get this working, as it would make playing MAME so much more enjoyable!

    I've played around with it a bit more, but no such luck yet.

    Well mine's a wired pad, but it still won't work. For what it's worth (probably nothing), I mentioned it in the Ubuntu Ideas Pool in the Development forum. Maybe a dev will think it's a good idea and implement it? Who knows.

    I don't know anything about it, but I was getting errors that said
    Code:
    ioctl(3, USBDEVFS_SUBMITURB, 0x7fffedef1250) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
    and
    Code:
    write(1, "error submitting URB: No such fi"..., 48error submitting URB: No such file or directory
    ) = 48
    Which leads me to believe that the problem is with URB messages that the program is trying to send.
    Like I said, I don't know anything about this, but this seems to be part of the problem with the program trying to claim the USB interface.

    It seems that the program is so close to working and it would be so much nicer to use this than have to use the somewhat lacking xpad driver.

    Well this is good news! The dev works on this very actively and I can compile a list of issue of problems for him to work through. It's really too bad it didn't work out of the box for the above people

    Luckily we can fix these problems quickly and get stuff working I'll let the dev know and re-submit.

    For dudude, you have the joydev and uinput working, correct? Did you try chmoding /dev/input/uinput to 664 ?

    PS: Sorry about the delay, I went on a trip this weekend

    Anything you could recommend for me Wootah? I replied to your earlier question at the bottom of the last page.

    I sent an email to the makers of this pad, apparently a German company, requesting Linux drivers. I didn't know if it would be useful or not, but I got an email back saying that they are unable to produce drivers themselves as it would prove too costly for them to support so many distros. However, the email did say -

    Under Windows this Gamepad use the Windows own HID Driver, with this you can write your own Driver for Linux.
    ...I believe they used Babelfish to translate from German to English for me!

    I don't know how useful that is (or even what a HID driver is), but, well, there it is.

    HID = human interface device. This should basically mean that everything we did should work

    Is there any other information you can post? You are using 32bit Hardy correct? Followed all the steps in the tutorial (just in case ) ?

    We could always try the last version from git ? Let me know what you think

    Yes, I'm running 32bit Hardy, and I followed your instructions right down and double checked as I went. I'm a bit noobish when it comes to compiling, but your instructions were very clear and easy to follow.

    I dunno. I think I'm screwed! I can't imagine what I need to do, but I've just tried again to get it going, and I'm still getting the "couldn't claim the USB device" error.

    Looks like if I want any new pad fun, I'm going to have to stick on XP.

    ...bugger.
