Mapping Air Mouse buttons to keystrokes

I have a Probox2 remote+. The mouse works out of the box. All keys except the A, B, X, and Y keys are detected by xev. I have installed the joystick package. I have looked at the documentation -

From the documentation I created the file joystick.conf below -

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "joystick-all"
Driver "joystick"
Option "MatchIsJoystick" "on"
Option "MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/js0"

Option "MapButton1" "key=67"
Option "MapButton2" "key=68"
Option "MapButton3" "key=69"
Option "MapButton4" "key=70"
Option "MapButton5" "key=71"


Am I doing anything wrong in the file and where should I put the file and what should I name it.

I have also installed jstest-gtk. When I run it it detects the buttons A, B, X, and Y but I cannot calibrate the mouse. Note that the mouse works fine without calibrating.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Your file seems ok, but I don't have this kind of hardware.

You need to put your file here :
Most often files there are named like :
Only one requirement, has to end with .conf suffix.
