Graphical program used to map keyboard buttons and mouse controls to a gamepad. Useful for playing games with no gamepad support.
AntiMicroX is a graphical program used to map gamepad keys to keyboard, mouse, scripts and macros. You can use this program to control any desktop application with a gamepad on Linux. It can be also used for generating SDL2 configuration (useful for mapping atypical gamepads to generic ones like xbox360).
We support X.org and Wayland.
It allows mapping of gamepads/joystick buttons to: - keyboard buttons - mouse buttons and moves - scripts and executables - macros consisting of elements mentioned above
This program is currently supported under various Linux distributions.
This application is continuation of project called
AntiMicro, which was later abandoned and revived by juliagoda.

If you are having problems with antimicrox detecting a controller or detecting all axes and buttons, you should test the controller outside of antimicrox to check if the problem is with antimicrox or not. The two endorsed programs for testing gamepads outside of antimicrox are sdl-jstest (sdl2-jstest) and evtest. SDL2 utilizes evdev on Linux so performing testing with older programs that use joydev won't be as helpful since some devices behave a bit differently between the two systems. Another method also exist, which can be found here.
If you would like to send the profile you are using for your application or find something for yourself, here is the forked repository. If you want to report a bug, ask a question or share a suggestion, you can do that on the antimicrox page or on the antimicrox-profiles page.
In order to obtain support, you can post an issue here.
Application's bugs will be fixed. There are created tests for detecting bugs. Of course, I'm open to proposals or questions from users.
A big, original inspiration for this program was the program QJoyPad.

If you want to participate in the translation of the program, but your language is not yet on the support list. Please contact us.
However, if your language is already supported in the program, you must have the Qt Linguist program installed, which is usually included in the qt5-tools package, to conveniently translate the application. However, before you do that, make sure that you don't already have this program installed. All you have to do is open it, and then use it to open a file with the ts extension.
If a red exclamation mark appears in the translation field, it means that your translation does not end with the same sign as the original content. Try to place commas or dots in appropriate places and often save your progress.
