With xserver-xorg-input-evdev 1:2.0.99+git20080912-0ubuntu6 now in intrepid-updates, all you need to do is update your system (just check the version of xserver-xorg-input-evdev if you joypad still doesn't work in Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) amd64, and make sure you're not using joystick-calibrator, jscal or another program like that).

The following is kept for reference.

Please use this page to keep track of joystick models whose lshal output have already been provided.

See this page if your joystick exact model is not listed below, then add it by editing this page. If the brand of your joystick isn't included, edit the page and add it in alphabetical order.

Once you manage to get a working fdi file for your joystick, please add it next to you model in the list (look at the fdi file for the Sony Dual Shock 3 to see how you can add it to the page. To upload the file, click here.

To enable your joystick in Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex, copy the fdi file for your joystick model in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/ :

Launch a terminal


and copy the file 10-wacom.fdi :

sudo cp YOUR_JOYSTICK.fdi /etc/hal/fdi/policy/

Creating a new .fdi file is a simple matter of finding out the name of the device via lshal and then inserting it below instead of "Microsoft X-Box 360 pad":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<deviceinfo version="0.2">
   <match key="input.product" string="Microsoft X-Box 360 pad">     
     <remove key="input.x11_driver" />
