Xboxdrv 0.8.4 setup

First off wow does this site not work with linux at all or at least the latest version of firefox maybe it's firefox but this site shows up horribly lol

so alright to my issue at hand:

Just inistalled xboxdrv 0.8.4 (latest) and having some issues with getting it to work the way I would like theres so much documentation before I read something else I've forgotten 3 things back that i read -.- I don't comprehend well :P but alright I don't know how many of you are willing to just give me the answer and if you don't I don't blame you honestly but either way you will to even help me better need my layout I assume so heres what I want using a wired xbox 360 controller:

Left Analog stick (and button)
UP: w
BUTTON: (blank but for examples sake lets say the shift (left or right I don't care))

Right Analog stick (and button)
UP: mouse up
RIGHT: mouse right
DOWN: mouse down
LEFT: mouse left
BUTTON: (blank but again for examples sake lets say it's the enter key (numpad or not doesn't matter))

LEFT: mouse right click
RIGHT: mouse left click
(Yes I mean for it to be reversed :P)

(thats it for axis unless like some configurations you consider d pad and axis but here I don't really wish too i think that will be decided I guess after i figure this out)

UP: arrow key up
RIGHT: mouse scroll down
DOWN: backspace (not delete)
LEFT: mouse scroll up

Face(?) keys
A: spacebar
B: e
X: tab
Y: shift (again)

START: Escape (ESC) key (just didn't want you to think \ where this is linux :P)
BACK: enter  (keypad or not doesn't matter)

Guide: (blank but for examples sake once more lets say Escape (ESC) key once more)

Bumpers: (What on original was black and white buttons?)
RIGHT: enter (keypad or not again don't matter)
one issue i'm having is getting the RIGHT analog stick to be a mouse I can get the left one to but NOT the right and i have no idea why. Also no way yet have i been able to get any keyboard keys to work at all I can make the left analog stick a mouse but I can't use that configuration when i use my left analog stick as a mouse I start freaking out and getting really uncomfortable :P everything i've ever played in my life as I remember either was setup like that or I was able to easily configure it that way. (normally I'm using windows to play all my games since there mainly windows and I use xpadder but ya know no xpadder for linux so I have nothing I know how to use for this situation. Thank you guys. Give me what you can for answers directly if you know or can if not anything that may help simply what i need to do?

also I have looked at the examples directory thats how I figured out the answer I had to just about everything else but i haven't yet found anything for keys on the keyboard that work. something else that confuses the man(?) page online i believe they have a small example that shows the right analog sticK(X2 and Y2) as mouse setup but i used that exact setup and it seemed to fail for me
