x52 PRO linux library source


This Directory contains the linux MFD+LED library source code for the SAITEK X52 Pro Flight Sytem. The library is written in C and requires libusb for building. The library does not deal with the HID part of the joystick since this feature is already fully supported by the linux kernel 2.6.x.


If you have questions please contact eduard@hasenleithner.at.

Version 0.1.2

Added GPL license headers to the x52output tool.

Fixed errors in the documentation. Fixed install section of makefile. Added another device-id (0x0255) for the old x52 Joystick.

Version 0.1.0

Renamed the x52test application to x52output. Added a manpage for x52output. Merged Makefile changes from Ubuntu maintainers for really installing this library as a ".so". Added an udev rules file for enabling MFD access from userspace.

Special thanks to Saitek for providing me with the necessary information on how to program the MFD and the LEDs.


My only relation to SAITEK is that bought an X52 Pro Flight System from them. The library on this page is in no way endorsed by SAITEK. Any trademarks on this page are the property of the respective owner.
