Need help with fanatec and rpi

Post by Shinu » Sat Jun 25, 2016 4:46 am

I'm using csw v2 in ps3 mode (It emulates g27)

I tested my USB adapter and It worked fine with PC, but Raspberry gave me libusb_get_string_descriptor_ascii Pipe error
After some investigating I noticed that fanatec wheels don't give Description string, so I edited that function to return true and recompiled.

Now it gives me "Reset sent to adapter" error and chokes. Any ideas? Thanks

Got some free time and did a "dirty: hack and it seams to be working manualy overriding iProduct string

I will test it and later analyze the code more to make a cleaner solution.

Is it a known problem?

Instead of modifying the software, you should replace the joystick name in the configuration.
Replace "G27 Racing Wheel" with "HID 046d:c29b".

Okay thanks.
But software to my understanding (after quick look, because rpi lags ) is getting descriptor from libusb function and then compares it. Libusb function itself returns error because the string is empty.
Non the less I will try it after RMA (cooling fan is acting up)

GIMX uses the device name to identify the device.
The operating system (GNU/Linux) builds the device name from the vendor and product strings.
If these strings are missing, it builds a device name from the vendor and product ids: "HID VID:PID".
Try detecting some event in gimx-config, you'll see what's the device name of your wheel.
