Hardware: simple utility for send hex commands to usb device

Ok, thanks... I also found it in the game : VDrift/tools/usbtool-0.1.tar.gz
Sorry... :oops:

But, I didn't manage to get my Formula Force EX fully fonctionnal on my Linux Ubuntu system.

Firstly, is it possible to have 2 separates pedals (brake and accelerate) on this kind of wheel under Linux ?
(on this moment, the 2 pedals are in the same axis : so I want 2 axis).
If yes, do I have to patch my kernel, or I can do it only with usbtool, and G25manage ?

Thank you guys Smile

No answer to my question?

Is it possible to have 2 separates axis for the 2 pedals (brake and accelerate) ?

For now, I have only 1 axis with the 2 functions... So it's impossible to brake and accelerate at the same time... So I lose time :?

Thanks Smile

Yes, this is certainly possible in VDrift (I do it with my Logitech G25), but only if your drivers support it. I'm not sure what the state is of drivers for wheels other than the G25.

that's where I'm at with my work to get the Driving Force Pro working on linux. no real updates since my last post there, unfortunately.

Automatic G25 recognition
I added a udev rule to that makes a G25 wheel get automatically recognised as such. When a G25 is plugged in and recognised as a Driving Force wheel, the first rule is matched and G25manage --nativemode is run. When the wheel reconnects as a G25, the second rule is matched and G25manage --range 900 is run.

If possible, I request somebody with SVN commit access to add it to SVN in tools/G25manage/ and mention its use in the README.

The text I added to the wiki is below, for reference.

Quote:If your distribution uses udev (such as Ubuntu), you can put this in /etc/udev/rules.d/90-g25-wheel.rules to automatically run G25manage when the wheel is plugged in:

SUBSYSTEM!="usb", GOTO="g25_rules_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="g25_rules_end"

ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c294", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/G25manage --nativemode"
ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c299", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/G25manage --range 900"


After creating that file and copying the G25manage binary to /usr/local/bin, run "/etc/init.d/udev reload" (or "service udev reload" on Ubuntu karmic) and you no longer have to manually run G25manage.

G25 udev rules
I just added some new udev rules to

Those new rules allow to get rid of the deadzones

anyone with a g25 wheel can tell if the force feedback is working on linux? every time i try to use it... the wheel acts weird, the force feedback makes the wheel to go left always i have to deactivate it to be able to use my g25... i'm using the latest generic kernel from ubuntu 10

What version of vdrift are you using? I haven't tried the latest SVN code with my G25 but the last release should work OK on most cars.

With Ubuntu 10.10 when compiling usbtool0.1 I run in to an error. libusb.i cannot be found. When I check what python version in shell, I get python2.6.6, but have installed and have set the build script version to 2.5, with no luck.

It's really important I get the wheel working, if anyone has any ideas on what to do, or can give me a compiled version of usbtool, it would be much appreciated.

I have installed swig (yuck!), libusb-dev, and python2.5 using an old repo. No luck, yet..
