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 recognises the properties of /dev/js0 (7 axis, 10 buttons), but after pressing a button the pad itself 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.
Bus 002 Device 016: ID 1a34:0801
$ dmesg | grep input
[ 5775.609391] input: ACRUX RF USB GAMEPAD 8206 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.1/usb2/2-2/2-2.3/2-2.3:1.0/input/input20

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...
Thanks & regards
