    Solved this problem by finding the correct VendorProductId. Originally used lsusb, but it was only listing the USB wireless dongle.

    so using evtest and looking at the top of the readout it gives, we found

    Input device ID: bus 0x3 vendor 0x45e product 0x2a1 version 0x107

    aha! change it to: 045e:02a1

    just one character off!

    Now its mapable.

    I’m bumping this post for visibility.

    Hey Oliver basically we can’t map new usb devices like Xbox controllers because Vrui doesn’t identify them. It’s so frustrating! Just keep getting the error ““InputDeviceAdapterHID::InputDeviceAdapterHID: No match for vendorId:productId” even after adding it to the rules and trying to merge the cfg file. It’s like the program just won’t see it. Mint sees it, I can play games on my Steam account with it, but Vrui won’t recognize it.

    Any help would be greatly apreciated.

    The Steel Series gamepad works if we copy everything you’ve done exactly but it’s really buggy when trying to use it wireless.

    Step Three is no longer working. Have the packages been updated?

    This is the error I get now:

    Compiling CalibrateProjector.cpp...
    In file included from CalibrateProjector.cpp:23:0:
    CalibrateProjector.h:41:32: fatal error: Kinect/FrameBuffer.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.
    /usr/local/share/Vrui-4.2/make/BasicMakefile:128: recipe for target 'o/g++-3.g0.O3/CalibrateProjector.o' failed
    make: *** [o/g++-3.g0.O3/CalibrateProjector.o] Error 1
    

    Thanks for any assistance!
