Configuring my spinner (SpinTrack) and track ball (U-Track) on Batocera image (1TB – July)

[UPDATE] got the spinner to work, for example in Akanoid. But how do I make the trackball work in Defence Command for example? that is also a mouse input (device ‘0’)?

I am trying to get my spinner (and track ball) working on the image I just installed (2DAI4 1TB image from this July).

And I am failing a bit 🙁

I can see the USB devices are registered – see screenshot, but I am unsure how to for example configure the spinner to work with Arkanoid (in Arcade). I vaguely remember I had to run a command to see which mouse event my spinner triggered (an ID?) and then adding this to some config on “input_player1_mouse_index” somewhere but I can’t find the documentation back (and I am not that fluent in Linux)…

Would anyone be able to provide some pointers?

Many thanks in advance,
