BGE joystick support under Linux & XP

I am in the finishing stages of a game but would like to use a joystick for moving an object because the four arrow buttons are not flexible enough.
Is anyone out there using a joystick combined with the BGE on the Linux platform?
If need be, I could go back to XP as this is a very important project for me.
Last, can a BGE executable be brought into an XBox or other gaming device?

Any info regarding the BGE and controllers would be of great help because I’d like to finish this thing and begin testing a.s.a.p.

Thanks guys :slight_smile:

You can either use BGE’s joystick sensor or pygame’s joystick module if you wan’t more advanced features. I haven’t tested them on Linux, but I can’t see a reason why they wouldn’t work.

A little more info here. Might provide some help.
