First of all thanks a lot for your job, STK is definitively funny. I recently upgraded to the 0.7.3 version, via GetDeb site and I see that there are amazing improvements from 0.6.2 version in ubuntu repos.
Yes, I have Ubuntu 10.04 (AMD64) on a self made pc, with Athlon X2 64 5200+ and 2 GB ram, Video card is nVidia G210.
I use a joystick like this:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0079:0006 DragonRise Inc. Generic USB Joystick
The joy is detected from STK and I can configure buttons without problems (as many other games I frequently run), but the steering and throttle/brake buttons (or axis) have a strange behavior: when I push the button (or move the stick) STK sense the movement and react, but when I release the button (or the stick) STK doesn't sense that has to put in "zero" position the steering wheel or the throttle.
Only if I use the stick with a very very short movement and if I release slovely the stick, STK sense that has to go back to "zero" position. That makes very difficult to drive the kart (with 0.6.2 version I had not that problem).
I'm italian, so my english is not perfect, I hope that you can understand what I mean.
I would apreciate a lot your help, to continue enjoy this fantastic game in this new version.
Thx a lot.
