That is f'ing cool. I might need to try and replicate one of those. Maybe with longer cables so the switch is closer to my wheel.

Try uninstalling xserver-xorg-input-joystick:

Matlo,
I have tried to uninstalling xserver-xorg-input-joystick but the message says that there is nothing installed!

Do you know another way to do this?

Thank you

Does your wheel control the mouse cursor?

Yes, the mouse is being controlled by the steering wheel and clutch pedal (x and y axis)

The left mouse button is controlled by the x button on the wheel

The right mouse button is controlled by the o button on the wheel

Following this as I'm trying to move over from my windows laptop + GIMX to Pi2 instead.

The boot up gimx doesn't seem to work, but if I kill it and start from a command line (xterm in gui mode)

Code: Select all

gimx --nograb --config LogitechG27_G29.xml --port /dev/ttyUSB0 --status
it works. :?

However, doing this also captures the wheel movement/buttons as mouse inputs - like Steve_C78 is experiencing. I'm using the latest build in post #1 and xserver-xorg-input-joystick is not installed. So still something not right here.

Will have another play over the next few days to get the boot up gimx to work for me.

Followed the AutoStart GIMX at Boot from the wiki :

http://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=RPi ... ithout_GUI

( and removed /home/pi/.config/autostart ) and all good!

If @waveform isn't maintaining the image any more, I'd be happy to upload mine if required. I've also disabled the X GUI as don't see the requirement of loading it as it will never be used.

p.s @Matlo, is it worth linking this thread/Pi image from the Pi wiki?

If you upload your image, I would definitely be interested in trying it out.

Do it...what are you waiting for? :lol:

When do you press the PS button on the wheel with the autostart working? Is there any delay to not get time-out or something?

You should be able to use the PS button after the wheel calibrates for the second time. I have not experienced a timeout.
