    Question Logitech Momo force feedback


    I'm using Mint Maya 64bit with KDE 4.8.4, kernel = 3.2.0-23-generic
    This kernel should have force feedback support enabled, so no re-compiling is needed...
    However, with my current wheel (Logitech Momo Racing Force black) I can't get FF working.
    It is calibrated correctly in System Settings -> Input devices.

    Some useful output perhaps...

    => Turning the wheel, pressing buttons gives a lot of output so seems to work.

    fftest
    Code:
    fftest -d /dev/input/event6
    
    Force feedback test program.
    HOLD FIRMLY YOUR WHEEL OR JOYSTICK TO PREVENT DAMAGES
    
    Device /dev/input/event6 opened
    Axes query:

    Upload effects[2]: Invalid argument

    Enter effect number, -1 to exit
    1
    Now Playing: Constant Force
    Enter effect number, -1 to exit
    -1
    No such effect
    => if I choose no. 1 (constant effect) the wheel only slowly moves to the left and stays there when it reached its maximum.
    All other numbers have no effect, which comes as no surprise seeing the 'Invalid argument' messages.

    I tried rFactor & Grand Prix Legends, both have FF enabled in config, wheel is recognized and 'works' but no FF.
