Libwiimote-ng is a simple C library for communicating with the Nintendo Wii Remote, nunchuk and classic controllers on a Linux system. This is a fork of libwiimote. It was created as the original maintainer of libwiimote seems to have gone missing.
- Maintained unlike libwiimote
As packaged, it is unbuildable on ubuntu 12.04 (requires use of aclocal from autotools) and it also does not install correctly (ld needs help finding installed library in /usr/local/lib). And yet, my test program (example 1 from the libwiimote project page) still produces "wiimote_connect(): devba: No such device" which the old libwiimote library was giving me.
no trouble to install and run, works nicely.
I like it among other things for its simple usage. I prefer it over the original libwiimote as it has bug fixes and patches applied that were was not applied on the original project.
