Gamepad not Recognized in 1.0

Gamepad not Recognized in 1.0

Postby mirandazellnik » 10 Nov 2019, 05:36

Hello All! First post here, saw these forums were active and I hope you can help me.

I used to play TuxKart years ago and on a whim decided to download it again. The updates look really cool! I first downloaded the 0.9.3-1 version available from "SuperTuxKart Team". This worked fine with my controller. I then realized there was a 1.0 version with online multiplayer and naturally wanted to get it. When I downloaded the version on the snap store, the game worked fine but did not recognize my controller as an input. This is an issue as that's how I play this game.

Info: Ubuntu 18.04, Logitech F710 Controller (which, as I said, worked on the older version of supertuxkart)

So basically, I was wondering if you guys had any advice for how to get the game to recognize my controller. I have already tried: Going to the options/inputs menu to see if it is recognized, restarting tuxkart with the gamepad plugged in, using both the "x" and "d" modes of the gamepad (and then restarting tuxkart with it still plugged in), and testing if the gamepad works with online tester. Perhaps the version on the snap store is not official, though every other feature of the game seems to work, even online games.

Attached is a screenshot of the input menu - no gamepad there.

Best regards,
Theo

The issue probably has to do with the containment of Snaps. Try uninstalling the Snap build, then installing the the PPA build (
{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stk/dev && sudo apt update && sudo apt install supertuxkart
).
Not an official dev, but a huge fan of STK!
