Accuforce v2 Linux Driver?

Paul Jones

Hi are there any plans to release a Linux driver? specificially for the Accuforce v2.

but also allow me to explain my experience so far,

first of all it works great in Windows and I love this wheel. I have the Accuforce v2.

And under linux it uses the basic hid_generic driver and the basic forcefeedback support in the kernel.

And tools such as fftest and ffcfstress seem to send force feedback commands fine.

force feedback even seems to work through joy.cpl in wine with. 

it just doesn't work through Assetto Corsa and steam.

the only thing i see in dmesg is "implement called with too large value" which is coming from hid-core.c in the kernel. almost like assetto corsa is sending incorrect hid reports.

if there is any help or advice that you could point me toward it would be much appreciated. and great kit.

Hi Paul,

I couldn't say for sure if the Linux driver properly reproduces all of the functionality in the Windows driver. It would appear that it does not from your description.

That said, I do know that some commercial/military folks use the AccuForce in a Linux environment but in that case, they write the simulator software, so maybe they only use parts of the driver that Linux emulates properly.
