Ubuntu not detecting any axes in Gladiator NXT Premium Right

Postby VTMarik » Fri Sep 03, 2021 2:51

Recently migrated to Ubuntu 20.04 from Windows, prior to that I successfully flashed it to the 2.05.5XT firmware with no issues. After the migration, Ubuntu detects the joystick and all of its buttons but none of the axes (X,Y,Z,Ministick, or Throttle). Doing the internal calibration does not fix this issue, and since no axes are detected by Ubuntu I can't do any mapping or adjusting via joystick or jstest.

Do I need to do some sort of factory reset on the stick, or is there a tool out there that I cannot find?

Most probably the joystick is fine, especially if the buttons work. I would try on specialized forums to find the proper settings under Ubuntu to have joysticks recognized.

Hi

What's output from dmesg regarding joystick connection ?

In my case (Gladiator II) it looks like this:

Definitely some problem, but stick (axis + buttons) works fine.

gentoo, kernel 5.14.0

I assume on windows it works fine? Can you check it ?
jstest shows buttons only, no axes, right ?

Correct, it worked just fine on Windows, but not since migrating.

I'm wondering if maybe something went wrong with the firmware update, is there a way to restore it to the old version without the software?

Paste screenshots from configuration of stick - maybe support will see any missconfiguration.
Now you can make topic "it doesn't work on windows", which should get more help from vkb ;-).
