js2mouse -cant get it to work
i am trying to use my logitech gamepad as a mouse using js2mouse. It is not working.
i am running suse 11.2
I have downloaded and installed js2mouse with no errors. when i run it i get:
Number of axes : 6
Number of buttons : 12
Driver version : 131328
Joystick name : Logitech Logitech Dual Action
that looks good, it knows the name of my gamepad!!
i have tried to configure it following the instructions at cedric.vincent.perso.free.fr/Projets/index.html -spefically this part:
"3) Js2mouse as a second pointer with GPM :
- It depends on your Linux distribution, so this is the most independant explanation that I can give... Adapt your own configuration files
- Log as 'root' (if necessary)
- Enter the following commands into a terminal :
gpm -m /dev/_YOUR_REAL_MOUSE_DEV_ -t _ITS_PROTOCOL_ -M -t ps2 -m /dev/j2m_fifo"
based on that, I have tried both:
gpm -m /dev/input/mouse1 -t ps2 -M -t js -m /dev/input/j2m_fifo
gpm -m /dev/input/mouse1 -t ps2 -M -t ps2 -m /dev/input/j2m_fifo
i dont get any errors form the terminal, but it does not work.
any help will be appreciated
