To be fair, the whole FF issue was reported by devs as being a kernel/steam issue at the time (about 2.5 years ago). Things may well have changed since, with new kernels released and better steam support. Maybe this is something Petr could look into again?

Nothing has changed in that time and only one currently unused wheel has full FF support.

However, starting with Linux 4.6 things will change as the G920 driver with complete FF support has been accepted into the kernel. Other Logitech drivers with full support have not been submitted to the mainline kernel yet.

@leinardi
GRID Autosport is a different beast. It pulls the forces from its simulation engine and because of that only needs a small part of the total FF support. In that regard, ETS2 FF is more basic and requires more from the wheel.

Basic support would be still better than no support at all.
at least some sort of force would be great for a start

Hello everybody,

I returned to playing ETS2 after about half of a year break and noticed that my wheel's (Logitech DFGT) force feedback doesn't work any more. I've googled around a bit and got the impression that FFB support is deactivated under Linux. However, I am very sure that half a year ago (end of 2015) I had FFB in ETS2! So I am wondering, why has it been removed in the first place?

Thanks for any comments,
Photon

Last time it worked was during the closed beta for Linux. My understanding from emailing SCS a few times is that they use FFB features that weren't supported at the time. The patches to fix it are there, and I think even accepted, so at the moment it's not working due to priorities being elsewhere.

Last time I emailed SCS they did say it's on the to do list, but there's no guarantee of when it may be working in either ETS2 or ATS.

Hello guys,

I just have to tell you that I had some success in past days! I am successfully adopting FFB plugin by Supric: viewtopic.php?f=109&t=49772

There are still some glitches and not yet implemented LEDs. Additionally I have to work on proper steering wheel detection, as currently I have hard-coded path to my wheel.
However FFB works so if anyone is interested to test it on Linux still, let me know, once detection is automated I can send you "WIP" version to try it out ;)

@Edwin: is it okay if I send it to you via PM?

@Harald-RS: if you will use it on Linux then it should, you want to try it?

Hey I have a G29, I'd love to test if it'll work on that :)
