Apart from standard joysticks (handled by the SDL) up to two keyboard joysticksare supported. The keys used for joystick directions and the trigger can befreely defined in the config UI (Controller Config -> Define layout).Keyboard joystick emulation can be enabled/disabled in the Controller Config.By default, joy 0 is enabled and joy 1 is disabled (to not steal normalAWDS keys in the emulator).

 

X11

Alt
Atari key (either Alt key will work)

Joystick 0 is operated by the mouse position relative to the center ofthe screen. The mouse button acts as the trigger. On Linux, standardjoysticks are also supported.
