If you could see more “gamification” of the Linux desktop, what would you imagine there being?
For example, here is what I would imagine (and I’m not a developer, BTW). I’d like to see a Desktop Utility (amongst all the other Desktop Preferences/Settings) which shows the successful testing of joystick buttons (and a diagram of the detected joystick, if possible), which would show a funny cartoon character reacting to joystick button presses in various ways. There’s Creative Commons Art available for this from artists like Tyson Tan:
So when you press the X button, for example, this character would stick out its tongue. Pressing L trigger button makes the character point at their mouth with the left hand. Pressing R trigger button makes the character point to their mouth with the right hand. You get the idea.
What would this be good for? Say, making sure the new rumble pack works in the 8Bitdo Sn30 Pro+ Bluetooth Gamepad (which is the case as of Linux 5.9, mainlined thanks to Microsoft). The character would jiggle around a bit at that time.
