Hello everyone, I was planning to buy joystick for use with ROS-indigo. I wanted to confirm if the one in the attached link is supported by ROS.

Thank you.

ROS doesn't directly support any joysticks, it relies on your OS for that. Currently that would be Linux.

If your joystick works with regular Linux programs, it should work with the joy node.

I used the original Xbox 360 Controller (wired and wireless) with the joy node and it did work good for me. So i assume that this joystick should work as well, even it is not the original one.
