    btnx can't find config files.

    I tried to install btnx from source to get my VX revolution tilt buttons to work. First I tried installing with apt-get but it can't seem to find the right package even if I have added the repos. So I tried installing from source, and I succeeded. Now when I try to launch it, it displays:
    Code:
    FATAL: Error inserting uinput (/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/drivers/input/misc/uinput.ko): Operation not permitted
     btnx: Modprobe uinput failed. Make sure the uinput module is loaded before running btnx. If it's already running, no problem.
     btnx: Could not read the config manager file: No such file or directory
    Segmentation fault
    When I try to run it as root it puts out:
    Code:
     btnx: uinput modprobed successfully.
     btnx: Could not read the config manager file: No such file or directory
    Segmentation fault
    I've got all the dependencies it needs, atleast all the dependencies that were asked by configure.

    try removing /etc/btnx/btnx_manager and /etc/btnx_config_Default then running the config again
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/btnx/btnx_manager 
    sudo rm btnx_config_Default
    Code:
    sudo btnx-config
    If that does not work then try reinstalling the package
    Code:
    sudo apt-get --reinstall install   btnx btnx-config
    then
    Code:
    sudo btnx-config
