Loaded Zorin Pro after my Windows install needed a reload but I discovered I no longer had my Authentication Code. No way was I going to pay for Windows again.
Right before this happened, I bought a Ifyoo Joystick. As I learned how to use Zorin, it stayed in the drawer. I took it out again recently and discovered it was a USB paperweight. The website doesn't mention supporting Linux. I'm certain that means "Abandon all hope."
Or should I? Is there any chance to get this working? I generally game on Steam (sometimes Lutris) but their joystick firmware didn't help.
If @swarfendor437 's suggestion happens to bear no luck, you also can try:
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:rael-gc/ubuntu-xboxdrv
sudo apt update && sudo apt install ubuntu-xboxdrv
You can modify and configure controllers with jstest-gtk
sudo apt install jstest-gtk
You can also install and use
You might be pleasantly surprised. I use Linux Mint 20.3 and it works well with my multi-button joystick. It also works with my RC flight controller and much to my surprise it even works with my force feed-back wheel and pedals that haven't worked since Windoze XP. And I didn't have to install any drivers for any or them. I did install jstest-gtk that Aravisian suggested so I could test my joystick but I don't think it is really needed.
