Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Do you want to use the gamepad by a single compiled application only, or is the gamepad supposed to provide input for the whole Linux system?
(I just wonder what purpose is, though game development seems to be the most likely explanation.)
^ actually i am using find + file to find all media on my hard drive.
then i am using a zenity checklist to build a playlist that will be passed to xine.
i would prefer not to have to walk to the tv to skip to the next chapter or something.
at this point joy2key only controls 1 window returned by xwininfo so my band-aid approach is to call it twice (once for zenity and once for xine)
is there a way to start a program or script based on a event like joystick button 1 being pressed ?
I just got this working today, I'd been trying to get "js2mouse" working, but was clueless. This was really easy, and everything seems to be working nicely for me, so if you need any help finding out what keys do what (or where they are), just ask. My keyboard has 105 keys, so if yours has that many, then they should be the same.
Location: Bible Belt Appalachian Mnts of Western VA/Eastern KY ah hell i don't care, I'm from Grundy. Woo Hoo A megatropolis.
Distribution: Mint KDE w/ a ton of PPA's and Repo's., Might be switching back to Mageia or PCLOS.
To Schneidz, To get qjoypad working properly, I had to recompile. I don't know what the problem was but If you are using a pre-built package, it could be an older version. If i remember correctly, A lot of distros have packages for 3.4. You need 3.4.1. Anyway this is what worked for me.
As far as js2mouse, I was successful in getting that working years ago to use my logitech cordless wingman as a remote control, if you need help with it let me know. I would recommend sticking to qjoypad.
I have not tried joy2key
I know this was solved but I never saw the solution unless you simply edited the config file manually
