(need to add "joydev" and "iforce" to /etc/modules.conf)

Post #9941

Because of my in experience, I don't really understand what I am supposed to do to make the Rumblepad to work. I understand that I am supposed to enter "joydev" and "iforce" to a file named modules.conf, but first off how do I get to the file and secondly how do I modify and save the code?..(I am asuming that I enter the joydev without the quote marks etc)...is that all I am supposed to do and then it will work? What I need is someone to interpret for me giving me a few more steps along the way. Please help!! Thank you ahead of time!!

Try adding the modules to the file /etc/modules by following the steps in this article .

Make sure that you are at the last section, "To be able to use ThinkFinger 0.3" and follow the directions on how to insert the modules at startup.

You can see if the device works at all before altering the /etc/modules file by doing;

sudo modprobe joydev (enter key)

sudo modprobe iforce (enter key)

(yes, without the quotes), in a terminal window. If the modules load correctly, you should see no output after hitting the enter key each time.

NOTE: To use the sudo command, you will need to know the root password that you set up when you installed Ubuntu, as you will be prompted for it when using the sudo command.
