I just bought an Enter E-GPV controller for like $3 on ebay.in. I was wondering if I could get it to work under Puppy Linux. I would like to play my Steam games using the gamepad just because it is more fun that way.

Can anyone help me to get the controller work with Puppy Precise 5.7.1

Thank You.

Hi...

Ironically, your gamepad, according to the manufacturer's website, isn't compatible with the PS2, nor did they issue any drivers for Linux.

Since you're running Precise, this thread might be of help. The packages mentioned may not be in the Puppy Package Manager (but look there first, anyway, as it would most likely be an easier process.) If so, you will need to do a search for the individual files to download. Wink

Hope this helps... Smile

Okay, so I followed that article and another puppy thread but I still could not get it working with Steam.

This is a complete description what I did :

I plugged the controller in and did a lsusb. Here is the output. So it is clear that my computer is recognizing this controller/gamepad.

lsusb : http://pastebin.com/LdfhWyrW

Then I did a
Code:
#ls /dev/input


There I saw a directory js0 but when I did
Code:
#cat /dev/input/js0
so it showed me nothing so the controller was not there

Then after reading on some puppy threads, I came across these three commands for probing the controller.

Code:
#modprobe usbhid
#modprobe gameport
#modprobe joydev


Then I checked back again my
Code:
/dev/input
directory and there was a new file as js1. Then I did a
Code:
#cat /dev/input/js1
and this worked the way it was supposed to in the mentioned article.

Then I followed the next instructions and it said to install a tool named "joystick" . I found a pet of it somewhere and I installed it. Then ran the rest two commands as instructed in that article.

Here is the output of both the commands :

1.
Code:
#jscal /dev/input/js0
: http://pastebin.com/n1dMerHE
2.
Code:
#jstest /dev/input/js1
: http://pastebin.com/PdwRYc6a (It detected all my inputs and responded accordingly)


My guess is that Steam is probably not recognizing it. I know this now shifts into steam topic. But still is there anything you can help me regarding this.

Thanks Smile[/code]

Hi...

Sorry, I have no idea. You would need to contact Steam. Wink

Regards...
