Logitech heeft Linux drivers aangekondigd voor al z'n digitale game controllers. De info van Coolinfo.com:
Logitech is one of the first companies to have released hardware specifications and given assistance in developing Linux human input device drivers," said Vojtech Pavlik. "I hope that this will set a new trend."
"Logitech's WingMan gaming group is focused on offering products that make computer gaming more fun and that are designed to help gamers play better," said Fred Swan, director of marketing for Logitech WingMan products. "Gamers should be able to take advantage of these products on the operating system of their choice. We're very pleased that, with the excellent work of Vojtech Pavlik, Linux gamers can now do so."
In keeping with the spirit of Linux, the source code and documentation for the drivers is available free from Vojtech Pavlik's web site (http://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~vojtech/joystick).
This source code can also be used as a base for independent developers of drivers for other operating systems. The devices which are supported by this driver include: Logitech WingMan Extreme Digital joystick, Logitech WingMan Interceptor joystick, Logitech WingMan Warrior joystick, Logitech CyberMan 2 six-degrees of freedom controller, Logitech WingMan Formula racing wheel with pedals, Logitech WingMan Gamepad, and Logitech Thunderpad Digital gamepad. Logitech's PS/2 and serial mice and trackballs have been supported in Linux for over a year. Current Logitech USB mice are supported in new developer releases.
