Natively, I can use the Logitech device driver that lets you change 
every parameter of the joystick and even map buttons to keyboard keys. 
(It's an awesome joystick BTW, if you like the XBox controller)

Obviously, these drivers aren't going to work in Wine. I read some stuff 
about registry entries you can make to remap a joystick axis, but it 
doesn't seem to work. I even looked at the DirectInput source code and 
did what I thought should work, but it doesn't. I just wonder if anyone 
has had any luck re-mapping a joystick in the registry?

I know there is a native Linux version of Rune, but I don't have a copy 
and don't plan on trying to obtain one either, because it runs 
flawlessly in Wine except for this little joystick annoyance,
