USB Gamepad detected as UPS?
The feedback I've got in this forum has always been amazing and has helped me make the complete transition to Linux (can't even remember Windows anymore). So I hope no-one will mind me pitching another very noobish question.
I'm having a lot of trouble getting my gamepads to work. I have tried a generic (god knows what brand) 6-button pad and (the more important) a Playstation 2 pad with a USB adapter.
Most games I use keyboard and mouse for, but I've just got the Playstation Emulator 'ePSXe' running and it's just not the same without a pad (running legally I will add. I do own a playstation, just not a TV :( )
When I attach the pad, the hardware section of 'Configure Your Computer' detects it as a UPS! That is confusing the hell out of me! I have tried searching the forums and Google and although I found many things mentioning gamepads and linux, I found none I understood. I still am pretty unsure what to acctually do to get it working.
Can anybody please help me out on this?
I am running Mandriva 2007 with the 2.6.17-5mdv kernel.
I don't know if it's needed, but in other threads people have asked to see 'lsusb', so here's mine:
