I followedthat tutorial to the letter, when I installed the pad, as for the program are you sayin jscalibrator, because yes and the buttons dont sense in that either, also is there a way to bind the second (right) joystick, i cant get to seem to make it work in games, but r3 and l3 work fine as does the left joystick.

For my saitek p2500 I had to install this driver as well:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-joystick
I'm not sure if that will help with the xbox 360 game pad or not, but it may be worth a try, I also had to unplug and replug my controller for changes to take effect.

I wrote a guide for my saitek controller, I don't know if it will be of any use for your controller but you can look it over here:

GL and if you get it going write us a guide :)

Im at the system in question and still having the same issues, also in joystick calibrator the right and left trigger are acting like axis and not registering as buttons.

The right analog stick is registering but I cant seem to get it to be useful for anything when playing grand theft auto vice city
