You could also add https://www.instructables.com/id/RC-Transmitter-to-USB-Gamepad-Using-Arduino/ to the manual, as this is an USB Adapter that works for win, linux and mac as standard HID interface, meaning it does not need any driver. It basically allows you to connect any PPM outputting transmitter (which is a quite big class) as gamepad to your machine. Only thing is you have to build it yourself based on an Arduino - however you can see this as an advantage or a drawback, as you wish... ;) I like it and it for me the preferred way of connecting any transmitter.

https://github.com/nigelsim/ppmadapter is an linux alternative to SmartPropoPlus.

Your welcome! I reported it on bugs@unity3d.com - hope that helps.

After looking through several forums and playing around with python-uinput (allows to software emulate HID stuff like joysticks) I found that this framework needs a joystick that has at least 1 button in order to use it - having 4 axes only is not sufficient!

On top of what framework was this software written? Is this Source Engine? Or UNITY Engine? I noticed that this console text output pattern ("Using libudev for joystick management") is pretty common. If you could tell me that I would open a bug report there.

I used a PS3 controller w/o any problem on the same system with same devices connected - that should be fine.

Is there any way to manually select the device used? Is there a way to output more info for debugging? (If the code would be available I could have a look and try to compile myself.)

I bought and used your simulator on linux. It's a nice little piece of software and very handy for training! However I have the issue that it is not able to access my joystick/gamepad from '/dev/input/js2'. It is a generic standard 4 axis device that I built according to the instructions in RC Transmitter to USB Gamepad Using Arduino that allows me to connect my Spectrum DX6i Transmitter to my PC. As it is working with e.g. flightgear and other software I have to assume the joystick/gamepad handling in FPV Freerider is not able to recognize it. How can I fix that?
