Hello everyone, (and sorry for the cross-posting, but in hardware/laptop noone cared...)
if I plug the USB-Receiver of my Big Ben Wireless Game Pad (which is almost a xbox360-controller) on ubuntu 8.04, it is found immediately
and jscalibrator correctly identifies the properties of /dev/input/js0 (7 axis, 10 buttons), but after pressing a button on the pad to connect it just blinks like it doesn't find the receiver. Also the label ACRUX RF USB GAMEPAD 8206 seems strange. The Win-driver from CD (TF0801.Inf) was tested with ndiswrapper and installed correctly but didn't change anything. Does anyone have an idea what to do? It seems like the receiver needs an order to activate listening for the pad.

I also tried ubuntu's xpad module without success. Now before I try http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=825464 grumbels xpad-driver I first would like to know whether that try would be worth the pain or there may be other solutions...
Thanks & regards
edit: I tried grumbels xboxdrv (see http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...4&postcount=77) without much success, now I'll use http://sourceforge.net/projects/usbsnoop/ and try to find the windows driver sync part... (the usb stick does not have a sync like the xbox one has, so there must be a software instruction)
this may take a while though...
