Hi there Jasem,
I just wanted to ask whether or not Joystick support has been implemented yet on the Mac? I just found this thread. I'm on OSX 10.15.7 Catalina on a Macbook Pro.

I checked that the Xbox One controller I just got does work on the Mac. There is a system extension called "Xbox 360 Controllers" you can use it with to do so. Perhaps you know of some way to use it with that extension?

Unfortunately under Kstars I always get the same message "Driver indi_joystick was not found on the system. Please make sure the package that provides the "indi_joystick" binary is installed." ...when following the instructions on how to install a joystick from the INDI website.

Anyway, any update would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you,

p.s. I'd also just like to say how wonderful I think Kstars / EKOS is! I'm very new to Astronomy / Astrophotography, and very much appreciate this amazing suite of tools. It makes our lives so much easier as beginners on the Mac.
