Got a steering wheel and want to manage it on Linux for all your racing and trucking games? Oversteer is what you need and a new release went out recently. This software helps you change the wheel rotation range, change the emulation modes, change force feedback gain, gives you configuration profiles and much more.
Oversteer version 0.8.0 from October 9th added these newly supported devices:
- Thrustmaster Ferrari F1 wheel attachment.
- Thrustmaster Force Feedback.
- Open FFBoard.
- Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel.
- Thrustmaster T80.
- Thrustmaster Ferrari 458.
- Logitech Pro Racing Wheel (XBox/PC).
Other fixes and improvements include:
- Fixed the mapping of pedals for Logitech G923 (XBox/PC).
- Fixed the mapping of controls for the Thustmaster T150.
- Fixed wmclass in desktop file (thanks @BlueManCZ).
- Fixed issues when synch'ing settings to the device.
- Fix default installation path to use prefix
- Allowed overriding of profile settings from the command line.
- Added check for available FFB support before trying to use it and thus avoid errors.
- Changed the way devices are detected to avoid issues in some setups.
- Added Polish translation (thanks @mmarusiak).
- Increased number of buttons displayed to 30.
- Improved UDEV rules by making them more specific and simpler (thanks @alxwk).
- Updated to Meson 0.56.
- Other smaller fixes.
I used this a lot when messing around with my Logitech Driving Force G29 Steering Wheel, it's so useful! Just make sure you have the right drivers installed for your hardware.
