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.
- Mapping of gamepads/joystick buttons to:
- keyboard buttons
- mouse buttons and moves
- scripts and executables
- macros consisting of elements mentioned above
- Assigning multiple switchable sets of mappings to gamepad.
- Auto profiles - assign profile to active application window (not in Wayland note).
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.

Commandline for flatpakIn case of flatpak package AntiMicroX can be launched with command:
flatpak run io.github.antimicrox.antimicroxinstead of just
In some cases it may be good to add alias
alias antimicrox='flatpak run io.github.antimicrox.antimicrox'
Testing Under Linux
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.
