[SOLVED]Saitek Evo or Xbox C. - No Buttons recognized

Postby AndreasH » Sat Mar 16, 2019 2:51 pm

Hello Pilots,

i am trying to get FG(last, fresh DL) to work under windows 10 Home (fresh install, 1803). And linux btw, specs below.

I have an old Saitek Evo which is recognized perfectly fine in windows and Saiteks driver. Buttons working, clickclick.

But not in FG, Throttle, Aileron, Rudder working, but if i click whatever buttons, i get no activated cross so i can't reassign.
Just tried a Xbox Controller, same thing, rudder, aileron, throttle working in both, but no button.
:shock:

I have also tried that under Manjaro, boy! what a ...'!§$%!!! .
Best i have got what was with flatpak, Stick buttonclicks working, yayyy, but configuration saving was not... *sigh
Build from git or packages are only throwing errors.

What should i do now with that Saitek stick ? Except >/dev/null of course ?

Thx!

Andreas

I am on windows 10, use saiteck evo with cord. Works like a charm in FG.

Did you try refresh joysticks in FG joystick menu?

there may be a limit on the buttons/axis seen by the code... since you can plug it in as a separate controller and it works properly, this limit seems to be even more indicated without reading the code...

LOL
Hotfix found. My machine has died. I think mainboard error.
New mainboard, new CPU, new windows and buttons are recognized.

Happy landing!
