Generic cheapish gamepad not working - driver not loaded

Hi I have new USB gamepad which works fine in my Windows machine but not in my Vero 4K+.

I tested with latest stable (not working) and updated to latest “bullseye” beta (not working). No “/dev/input…” device is created, gamepad is not working, but its lights light up. Seems like a missing driver thing.

Gamepad reports itself as “Microntek” made and I was able to gather some info and it seems that module “hid_dr” needs to be present in the kernel for this to work.


@sam_nazarko Can you please enable given switch/module for the kernel?

I can add this for the new video stack which will enter testing at the end of Summer.


I’ve added support for this to our 4.9.269 kernel

THank you so much.

Maybe dumb question: Can I somehow test your fix? Do not see any updates in the repo. :slight_smile:

You will need to wait until it’s made available
