By JD
Through the tool LTWheelConf[github.com] it is possible on Ubuntu get to fully working (separate axes, full wheel range, clutch pedal, H-shifter) the following Logitech steering wheels:
  • Driving Force
  • Momo Racing
  • Momo Force
  • Driving Force Pro
  • Driving Force GT
  • G25
  • G27

Get LTWheelConf
Unfortunately it is not available directly as a binary, but you can easily compile it using the following commands:

Get some dependencies
sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev git jstest-gtk joystick

Download the source

Build the source
cd LTWheelConf
make

You should now have an executable named ltwheelconf.

Install
sudo cp ltwheelconf /usr/local/bin/
Use LTWheelConf
List all found/supported devices
sudo ltwheelconf --list

Supported wheel shortname values:
  • 'DF' (Driving Force)
  • 'MR' (Momo Racing)
  • 'MF' (Momo Force)
  • 'DFP' (Driving Force Pro)
  • 'DFGT' (Driving Force GT)
  • 'G25' (G25)
  • 'G27' (G27)

Set wheel to native mode
sudo ltwheelconf --wheel <your-wheel-shortname> --nativemode

[/b]Set wheel rotation range of 900 degrees[/b]
sudo ltwheelconf --wheel <your-wheel-shortname> --range 900

Examples:
Put wheel into native mode:
$ sudo ltwheelconf --wheel G25 --nativemode
Set wheel rotation range to 540 degree:
$ sudo ltwheelconf --wheel G27 --range 540
Set moderate autocenter:
$ sudo ltwheelconf --wheel DFP --autocenter 100 --rampspeed 1
Disable autocenter completely:
$ sudo ltwheelconf --wheel G25 --autocenter 0 --rampspeed 0
Set native mode, disable autocenter and set wheel rotation range of 900 degrees in one call:
$ sudo ltwheelconf --wheel DFGT --nativemode --range 900 --autocenter 0 --rampspeed 0


Now you can configure the steering wheel directly from Euro Truck Simulator 2. To test and calibrate the steering wheel outside ETS2 you can use jstest-gtk
Automagically invokes LTWheelConf
We can add a rule to UDEV to automatically invoke LTWheelConf when the steering wheel is connected.

This can be done using the following command (use the correct shortname instead of <your-wheel-shortname>!):
echo 'ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c294", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/ltwheelconf --wheel <your-wheel-shortname> --nativemode --range 900"' | sudo tee -a /etc/udev/rules.d/90-logitech-wheel.rules

Now you need to restart UDEV:
sudo service udev restart
Supported distributions
Tested on
  • Ubuntu 13.04 (x86)
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (x64)

Let me know if it works on other distributions.

I'm glad that now there's a plugin to fix FFB. However, it's very weak in my DFGT, no matter how I set the in-game FFB sliders. Anyone else experiencing this? Any solutions?

@SwagiYo, take a look on this:
https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues/908#issuecomment-441121216

Is not a problem of Wine or Proton. A game update broke the FF support

Hi all, how do i get FFB working in Project cars 2? everything else works fine.

OS: Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 3.8.9

Im a linux newbie, so please be clear on what to do.

Thanks in advance :-)

@rockstarrwop: I had thought, I have the same problem and had sought help in the SCS forum. From 50keda I got this answer, because I want to use its FFB mod: You don't need that anymore. For sure not with my plugin. So just ignore that guide, install my plugin and go to game and enjoy :) - I hope you can enjoy this, too. Best regards, Teppey71

If you want Force Feedback support in ETS2/ATS you only have to install this plugin. Works fine:

Will this work with Thrustmaster Ferrari Racing Wheel Red Legend Edition?

Someone check this (Force Feedback in ETS2/ATS):
