Thread: NovaShell in Linux won't start (joystick error)

    Default NovaShell in Linux won't start (joystick error)

    When I try to start Novashell in Linux, it doesn't run. The log.txt file has the following output:

    [debug] Setting up joystick

    [debug] Joystick Error: /dev/input/js0: No such file or directory
    When I plug my Joystick in, the log says:

    [debug] Setting up joystick

    [debug] Joystick Error: /dev/input/js1: No such file or directory
    I've searched the forums and seen that a couple people have had this same problem, but I haven't seen a solution. Any suggestions?

    I'm sorry. Turns out this joystick thing wasn't the source of the crash. Once I installed the OpenGL drivers, everything worked perfectly. Now I can start my designing!

    Again, sorry for the bother.

    No problem, I appreciate knowing because I don't want anything to silently bomb out! I've modified the new version to hopefully give clearer messages in the log file, and will also automatically switch to windowed mode in some cases if an error is detected.
