Hi,

I have just install FPV freerider however on a fresh Ubuntu 17.04 instal, my transmitter is not working, no signal seemed to be detected.
The transmitter works well: FPV freerider has no issue with it when I tested on Windows; It appears as expected in /dev/input/js0 and also creates an entry in /dev/input/by-id/usb-xxx-event-if00; jstest-gtk works great; Velocidrone is recongnising the transmitter correctly(on the same ubuntu install).
The log only says:
Desktop is 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz
Using libudev for joystick management
Importing game controller configs
UnloadTime: 1.813000 ms

Any ideas on where the issue could be or how do I get debug information?
Thanks!
Fabien

After some research, as someone mentioned, some buttons must be emulated otherwise the controller is not recognised by FPVfreerider.

To do that, use the wejoy : https://github.com/Vantskruv/w... and calibrate the original joystick with jscal to get rid of deadzone. Then FPVfreerider is working like a charm!

Thanks for reporting back. I'm glad you found the solution, I'm sure it will be of help to others!
