Microsoft Plug & Play Game Controller

Postby admiralsboy888 on Fri Jul 27, 2012 8:43 pm

I found a USB Microsoft Plug & Play game controller at a yard sale and want to get it to work with Mint 12, specifically with Nexiuz and OpenArena. I am using an Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook with 2 GB RAM and 120 GB HD. Any advice would be appreciated!

UPDATE: I put this question out there a couple days ago. Hard to believe 28 views, no replies. I've never had a question go unanswered on here this long! Will someone PLEASE help?

Another update: Now there have been 66 views and no replies. Isn't this supposed to be a "friendly" community where people help each other? I'm getting rather frustrated witht the lack of help in this and another topic I posted.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Erm... I don't know, but you could try searching for your game controller on the Linux Community Website, ( they could have the software for the device you have. I just saw you post and thought I could try to help a bit... :wink:
