Logitech G13 configuration
viirin commented on 18 January 2019 at 8:20 am UTC

I'm trying to get my Logitech G13 working well - I've got 2 different drivers that I'm able to get working, but both have problems...

The first I tried was

This one works pretty well, except that it doesn't seem to support key combination mapping (So, for example, I couldn't map G1 to "L CTRL + 1")

On the other hand, this one does a pretty great job with the thumb stick, which functions smoothly.

Which brings me to the other driver -

Conversely, this one supports key combination mappings, but the default config of the thumb stick is awful - there's dead zones that make it not function smoothly at all.

So I guess I have 2 questions:

1. Does anyone use the ecraven/g13 driver that has figured out how to set the stickzones for smooth control?
2. Is there some other driver out there that I haven't found that will do both of these things that I'm looking for?

Looking at the code for it all seems pretty basic. Looks like the stick can operate as a joystick or mapped to cursors/page up/page down. The first seems pretty direct unless calibration is done. Don't see anything for a deadzone though. If your problem is with the mapping to keys, then the detection zones are defined starting line 35. Should be easy enough to mess with those.

Ehvis - Thanks so much for looking into that for me. I didn't know about the pageup/pagedown zones and that was throwing me off. I still am pretty bad at visualizing the coordinates and how they affect the stick, but I was able to modify it based off what they had in the code there already so that I'm getting smooth movement in my game now when using the stick (just like I was in the other driver).

Can't thank you enough, really happy to have this working!
