    please help noobie with logitech dual action usb gamepad

    hi...i just installed ubuntu 7.10 a couple weeks ago and found alot of help here and now ive bought 2 logi logitech dual action usb gamepads and trying to play fceu games and also nexuiz.I got the buttons to work on both games but failed to get the d-pad and analog sticks to work at all.Ive searched all the threads here and other forums and tried using jscalibrator and the dpad and sticks work when calibrating but not in games.Ive also tried the "sudo apt-get install joystick" and then "jscal /dev/input/jso" and then "jstest /dev/input/jso"
    (commands)....but when i do this it just takes me back to command line with no error or anything.If anyone has any fairly simple noobie approved methods for getting this to work i would really appreciate it.....ive read many threads with people having the same problem with dpad and stick not working but found no solutions.thanks..
    also,forgot to mention that when configuring gamepad in fceu only the buttons register and configure but the dpad and sticks do not do anything.just a detail i forgot.thanks

    jscalibrator is your problem, 200proofhonky. It does exactly that: reports the directional controls as working, while preventing them working with other applications.

    Remove it along with the configuration files: if you leave the configuration, apparently, it may still continue having the same effect.

    Re: please help noobie with logitech dual action usb gamepad

    I'm having the same problem - I have removed jscalibrator and all the configuration files I could find but still no directions are working, while the fire and start buttons are working fine.

    I ran

    sudo find -name *jscalib*

    and deleted all those - are there other configuration files I have missed? I also just ran 'complete removal' on jscalibrator and libjsw in Synaptic.

    Thanks for any help

    Look for .jscalib or .jscalibrator in your Home folder, ryank76nz. Otherwise, reinstall jscalibrator, and remove it in Synaptic, using the Mark for Complete Removal option - that should remove the configuration as well.

    Oh, yes - and reboot!

    jscal registers the directions but I don't know which is which... directions still not working in fceu.

    I have tried a few things from other threads (except jscalibrator!) and now have these files:

    /etc/modules
    Code:
    # /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
    #
    # This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
    # at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

    lp
    rtc
    warrior
    joydev
    ns558
    adi
    analog
    /home/ryan/joystick.cal

    Re: please help noobie with logitech dual action usb gamepad

    If your controller works Ok in other applications, I'd say the problem is with FCEU, ryank76nz. I use GFCEU, which seems to work fine.

    One thing I always do on installing/upgrading to a new version of Ubuntu is to put a symlink in /dev to /dev/input/js0. This is because a lot of applications look for js0 is /dev; often you can reconfigure where they look for the device, but not always - and it makes life easier, too!

    I'm not sure if that might be your problem: I can't remember where FCEU looks for controllers, but from what you're saying, the buttons work while the directional controls don't? If that's the case, FCEU must be finding the controller OK; but you don't say specifically that the buttons are working.

    Edit: that last report in your post is jscalibrator - you're still using it!
