Problem with Genesis Controller Adapter on Ubuntu
Recently, I bought this Genesis Controller Adapter from ebay, and two units of this spare Genesis controller from Dx.
Using this adapter, I can play fine a lot of games on my PC on Windows 7, but on Ubuntu I'm getting a strange issue: it's working fine on older Ubuntu versions, but not on newer ones.
I've tested it on Ubuntu 10.10 and 12.04, and everything was working as expected. But when I tested on Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04, D-Pad Up and Left aren't responding. I checked output of "cat /dev/input/js0", and all buttons responded except for those two D-Pad directions. I'm guessing it's some kernel-related issue, since old Ubuntu versions aren't giving me any issues.
Anyone got a similar issue, or any workaround for this? Here's what "lsusb" returned for my device:
