Linux V2.60 w/ hotfix GOG - POV misbehaviour on Logitech Extreme 3d Pro (more testing shows ALL POV's misbehave)

Post by spookywatcher » Tue, 21. Jan 20, 22:25

Linux v2.60 w/ hotfixes from GOG - Vanilla - No Mods

Using the Logitech Extreme 3d Pro POV gets weird unexpected behaviour. It is repeatable every time. Does not happen in my Windows install v2.60 w/ hotfixes and same setup and configs etc.

I have the pov set up as
POV-Up = Open quick menu
POV-Down = Map
POV-Right = Missions
POV-Left = Player Information

In the menus POV is setup to navigate around..ie. move highlight up down left right etc.

#1) Start new game or load save game (does not matter) standing next to ship and push POV-Up and get expected action "Open Quick Menu"
#2) Hit escape to go back to platform
#3) Push POV-Up and nothing registers. Push several times and nothing.
#4) "Cycle" the POV through all movements and will be able to push POV-Up and get the expected outcome.

While in menus eg. Quick menu push POV-Up may or may not work. Same with all POV inputs..may or may not work. "Cycle" the POV through all movents and then I can use POV to navigate...but then some direction may not work. "Cycle" the POV and then may or may not be able to navigate.

I can confirm that the POV switch is registering all clicks at the kernel level during game play. Even when not working during game play.

Re: Linux V2.60 w/ hotfix GOG - POV misbehaviour on Logitech Extreme 3d Pro

More testing...

I disconnected my Logitech extreme 3d Pro and connected the CH Pro Throttle.
Mapped the same actions to the POV switch and got the exact same misbehaviour.

I also tested the Logitech Dual Shock (PS 2 style controller) and it's POV acted the exact same way with misbehaving.

I also tested the XBox 360 wired controller and the D-pad (closest thing to POV on it) worked perfectly as expected.

So to confirm:

Logitech Extreme 3D Pro POV misbehaves
CH Pro Throttle POV misbehaves
Logitech Dual Shock controller POV misbehaves
XBox D pad behaves normally.

And I tested them all again in the Windows Install and all worked as expected.

just a few things that catched my attention when lokking at your system specs:

1. your graphics driver is a bit old. you have 410.78, the latest is 440.44. this can be related to your issue.

2. your linux mint installation isn't the latest, too. but since i'm on a rolling release distro i'm quite to unexperienced to tell if that could be related to your issue.


in this forum is a sticky thread for linux support viewtopic.php?f=180&t=414524 maybe somebody else had similiar issues and found a solution.
also check the 'joysticks' section in the initial post.

good luck :)
