Hi, I would like the joypad support to be a required part of mandelbulber instead of a compile time option. This, hopefully would get smarter eyes than mine to look at what ubuntu packages are required to enable this support. I have investigated to the end of my ability, please help. Thank you all for the program Here's a picture I made with it.

It is an option because qtgamepad is very new feature in Qt. It is available in Linux Debian since version 5.10. Earlier it was just an experimental library.
I Mandelbulber it is not final implementation.
This is the reason why it is an option.
To use it you need to install libqt5gamepad5 and libqt5gamepad5-dev
When you run qmake it will detect is this this library is in the system and use it automatically.

With respect sir, those packages do not appear to be in ubuntu 18.04 mate.
Code: [Select]
jj@parker:~/Desktop$ sudo apt install libqt5gamepad5-dev libqt5gamepad5

should I try to contact the maintainer for qt in ubuntu?

so you need to get them before installing.

Please  continue to document any steps or problems, as I also would like to try the gamepad in Ubuntu 18.04

In Ubuntu there is still Qt 5.9 which doesn't have QtGamepad module. Probably it will come with Qt 5.10 in Ubuntu. If you want to play with it try to use Debian Buster (testing) which already has Qt 5.10.
