Hi Felix
I gave it my best shot with out success.
I compiled "~/sw ground_segment/joystick"
Placed "xbox_booz__nav.xml" in "~/conf" 
Executed "./sw/ground_ segment/joystick/main_stick"
The terminal output confirmed  "/dev/input/event6"  and then 5 after another attempt
I addded this to your original instruction ie
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/jsbsim/lib ./var/BOOZ2_A1/sim/simsitl --js_dev
Then executed:  LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/jsbsim/lib ./var/BOOZ2_A1/sim/simsitl --fg_host --js_dev /dev/input/event6
The Quadrotor lost control in flight gear, the screen went blank and the "./sw/ground_segment/tmtc/server"  
terminal window printed multiple long/lat /utm error reports.
Am I most probably attempting something way beyond my capability or is there an error that can be addressed?

Dear Felix
Thank you, I will give it a shot.

Hi Stephen,

I currently don't have a joystick here (and never tested it before),
but do give it a try:
Just start the sim with the additional joystick option, something like this:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/jsbsim/lib ./var/BOOZ2_A1/sim/simsitl --js_dev

Depending on your joystick it might be mapped to some different device
(check with dmesg) or have a look in /dev/input/by-id/<your-joystick>

Regards, Felix
