    I've played with it a little, but haven't successfully gotten it to work completely. It has been a few months, so I'll give it another go tomorrow or so and let you know what I find out.

    Code:
    tail /var/log/messages
    Do that as root and you'll be able to see if the kernel picked it up.

    From what I remember...you need the modules evdev and joydev to get this to work...but I don't remember a whole lot about it.
