    Anyone know of any way to get the t500 working in linux? noticed that euro truck simulator 2 was linux compatible on steam, also with project cars being released on linux in just a few months you would imagine that the wheel manufacturers would be developing some drivers for linux.

    I'm wondering the same thing... I'm trying to get the T500RS working in Linux Mint 18.1 (pedals only for now are giving me troubhe).

    TM support sent me the standard reply ("thanks for using... unfortunately no Llinux support..."), but most of the wheel works ok, just the pedals are acting up (throttle doesn't register anything while brake and clutch register as *buttons* 7 and 8).

    I've tried fiddling with xboxdrv, jstest, antimicro & friends, but so far to no avail.

    All the best, Uwe

    Hi folks,

    thanks to Andrew Conrad the wheel now works on Linux:

    I cannot really comment on the FFB as I'm only using the pedals for x-plane 11 on Linux ATM.

    Cheers, Uwe
