Greetings,

I have recently purchased a Logitech F310 usb controller to play games on Fedora 21. However, the controller does not seem to work out-of-the-box so I was wondering if anyone has experience getting this thing (or other controllers) set up on Fedora. When I lsusb I see the controller listed as:

Bus 001 Device 015: ID 046d:c21d Logitech, Inc. F310 Gamepad [XInput Mode]

However, when I try use the controller with Steam, zsnes or snes9x none of the buttons work. I have read online that this controller uses a driver called xpad. When I modprobe xpad it is not found. Also, a blog post I found ( https://bluehatrecord.wordpress.com/2014/06/20/installing-zsnes-in-fedora-20/ ) suggests that this controller works flawlessly on Fedora 20.

I'm at a loss for what to try next to get this thing to work, any advice is greatly appreciated, Thanks.

UPDATE: I've found more info suggesting that the kernel-modules-extra package is needed for most joysticks and gamepads. However, installing this package was not enough to get the F310 to work.

So after more investigation I've discovered that kernel-modules-extra does indeed have the correct modules for the F310, however, another package is needed to put the proper support into place. The package is joystick-support. Here is the info about it:

Description : By default the joystick and game pad drivers are not loaded at
            : boot time. Nor are they installed by default. Installing this
            : package will load the main joystick and game pad drivers as part
            : of the install, will bring in kernel-modules-extra if it is needed
            : (which it currently is), and will set things so that they will be
            : loaded during future boots.
