gamepad on raspberry pi
I am trying to get a gamepad working on raspberry pi (model B rev 2 512 mb ram).
I am trying to find some software that will recognize it, I have not been able to find any software that will recognize to calibrate or map it to keys/mouse events.
But, I have found that the command 'lsusb' recognizes the device as a gamepad. It is a Logitech F310 Gamepad in X input mode.
I am running the Raspbian OS version from raspberrypi.org (2012-10-28). I have installed jscal, joy2key, and joystick - all via apt-get.
Neither jscal nor joy2key recognize a joystick/gamepad being available. There is no js0 in the /dev directory, and it is not in /dev/input. (at one point I thought I saw a /dev/input/js0, but it is no longer there, I think it may have been right after I installed the 'joystick' driver, but disappeared after I rebooted).
I have tried using 'modprobe joydev', which sadly did not work either.
The games I want to use the gamepad with are doom and quake3, I am not sure if either support gamepads or if I will have to map it to keyboard/mouse controls, either way I have not making any progress besides seeing the device listed with lsusb's output.
