User guide / Common Joystick Controls

Many of the games and programs in Rogue Class Linux share common joystick controls, For example, the Start button will quit most programs, and Right Trigger plus the Start button will save and quit most games. Use the shoulder buttons if your controller lacks triggers.

In most programs, the Select button will shift focus to the next GUI input. The Y button plus Up or Down are the same as page up or page down. The direction buttons are the same as the arrow keys.

Supported joysticks are configured automatically when they are plugged in. Other joysticks must be configured manually before they can be used.

Below is a table of a few common joystick controls. This table is based on controls.ods in the libvjk package. See also How to use the virtual keyboard and mouse.
