Post bsnes and Super Smart Joy
Hello,

I run bsnes on Ubuntu.

I have a SmartJoy and a controler snes. The buttons work correctly but up, down, left and right don't work at all.

I test my controler on jscalibrator : all work correctly.

Do you use SmartJoy with a controler snes in Bsnes?

Thanks for your responses,

Wark

Interesting, thanks for the info.

My controllers report no POV-hats, but it looks like that's needed for those without analog sticks.

I'll add this to my to-do list. No promises on how soon I can have it fixed, sadly.

jscalibrator has been known to cause problems with gamepads in ubuntu for quite some time. Did you even try to see if the gamepad worked out of the box before you installed jscalibrator? From my understanding of it, the process is as follows:

(1). Controller may/may not work just fine in Ubuntu, but for some reason users install jscalibrator anyways.
(2). Once jscalibrator is installed, it reports all buttons/joysticks/dpads working correctly.
(3a). Gamepads that worked just fine before installing jscalibrator, now experience non-responsive dpads/joysticks.
(3b). Gamepads that didn't work properly, still don't work properly with non-responsive dpads/joysticks.

EDIT: Try and see if the gamepad works in pSX/ZSNES?
