No idea, but you can use tools such as qjoypad, joy2key, etc. to emulate keyboard presses with a joystick, that should work for most emulators.

I have a regular gamepad. Well, qjoypad, joy2key,... might work indeed.

It must be certainly a program that handles the /dev/input/js1 and /dev/input/js2. Zx81 is a old thing, might be... :confused: I havent found yet.
