I am using a Logitech F710 joystick game controller in ROS Kinetic Kame. I was able to perform
jstest testing, and can see my joystick works well.
But when I try to use joystick with Turtlesim or with simple teleop_twist_joy, I see this error :
[ERROR] [1567106281.990244467]: Couldn't open joystick force feedback! and there is no response on the screen in turtlesim or in the terminal itself.
Here's entire terminal log:
