Hey all, first post, first time using Linux as a permenant desktop....

So i have a Logitech G930 headset that has a USB receiver that I've used for quite some time now on Windows, but then I accidently blew up my desktop working on it at 4am when I got home from work. So I stuck a flavor of Linux on my desktop and trying to get caught back up....

So I got the Logitech Gaming System software installed through the dev version of Wine using POL, but I can't figure out how to get it to recognize the USB device. I added the device location through the Wine configuration, but its still not recognizing the device....

Anyone have any ideas? I've heard Wine isnt too good at recognizing USBs but I've also seen some success stories out on the interwebs where people have used web cams and other devices through Wine as well.

Wine is not for drivers, so if is not supported on Linux, it will not be seen in Wine. Does it work like normal on Linux? Like, is it functional? If it is, then it should work through Wine, although your software for controlling it will probably be useless.

Thanks for the quick reply. It actually isn't a Linux native application and Logitech doesn't make a Linux/mac friendly management application. Yes it does have drivers but it functions more like a management console since it can flip between hardware types and reprogram buttons on each device.

Since its not supported for Linux I was hoping to figure out a way to mash together a workable measure. However, I did notice that when I plugged in the receiver to the headset, Mint was able to play sounds through it, but it was very staticy, almost like it was understanding half of the audio codec....

Edit: the application does launch and the settings are able to be manipulated so the application does work, just not the critical part of reading the USB receiver.



Hope this additional information helps understand my scenario and question.

That is not what I meant. I meant to say that if you can plug it into your linux system and use just use it (no software. Just use it. Select it from your audio devices. it should show up.). You don't need drivers or anything for it. That software will likely always be buggy because Wine inherently does not use Windows drivers. You will just have to figure out how to manipulate and optimize it through Linux. Then you will have no problem using it through wine, because all Wine does is just use your default audio system. 

 

The software will not work through WIne to control the USB device at a hardware level. You will have to adjust your audio settings through Linux or google search for information about that audio headset and Linux, not Wine.
