Pre-sales enquiry.

Post by Compinche » Sun May 26, 2019 6:20 pm

Hello. My trusty old Fanatec GT2 911 wheel and Clubsport pedals are still in operation on my Windows 7 PC. However, I would like to swap my OS to Linux Ubuntu (probably Mint) as more and more games are becoming available on Linux and I refuse to go to Windows 10. However, I understand that Ubuntu only supports Logitech wheels natively. Would the Gimx device enable me to emulate my Fanatec setup as a Logitech one on my Linux machine?

Thanking you in anticipation. :)

Hello,

Many Fanatec wheels have a PS3 mode, which makes the wheel mimic a Logitech wheel.

If your wheel does have a PS3 mode then enable it and check if it works using fftest command line tool.

I do use the wheel on my PS3 as well quite successfully, so I suppose it must have it.

I will try it, many thanks for the suggestion.
