I am using a Logitech gamepad F710 connected on /dev/input/js0 to my Ubuntu 16.04.5 which runs ROS Kinetic Kame.

The game controller works well with jstest and I can see all the keystroke values well.

But when I try to use it with teleop_twist_joy, I get this error : [ERROR] [1567106281.990244467]: Couldn't open joystick force feedback!

Console output:

I see the similar error when I try to run teleop node with turtlesim from this tutorial: http://wiki.ros.org/joy/Tutorials/Wri...

I did google search about the error, and found most of the answers where people would suggest to ignore it; but it's not the case for me, as I don't get any other output/response.
