I switched from W10 to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS some days ago, and up until now, I have found solutions for all my noob questions about stuff.
But recently, I installed Steam and tried to install Elite Dangerous: Horizons. I got it up and working on Proton 4.11-7 with the mouse, but I had always been using my trusty Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick on Windows 10 when playing the game, but when trying to set up the joystick on Ubuntu, I immediately ran into a lot of problems. When I look at 'General Controller Settings' I can see that Steam for some reason thinks that my joystick is a Generic Gamepad ??
I thought that that was pretty weird, and Elite Dangerous thinks the same too when I fire up the game. Steam thinks that my joystick is a Generic Gamepad and I don't know why?
What I've tried:
- I've tried re-installing Elite Dangerous. No effect.
- I've tried setting the 'Steam Input Per-Game Setting' to 'Forced Off'. No effect.
- Tested the joystick with
jstest-gtk. It is recognizing it correctly as a joystick!
- I also tried launching ED in Big Picture Mode and tried Steam Beta Release... No effect at all.
Please help. Any help will be highly appreciated!
