Thanks for the reply. I'm durrently under the impression I'm using evdev, but this is may not be the case. I do know that I've installed the libevent-dev repo in synaptic, but that's the extent of my joystick packaging knowledge. I had joystick and jscalibrator packages previously installed (a while ago), but removed both because they didn't seem to help me with any of my previous linux gamepad problems (that probably wasn't at all relevant, but input devices are still something I don't know much about in linux).

Actually, I now think I'm using joydev. This was the output of the command I used to find my joystick name:

WINEDEBUG=+dinput wine program.exe 2>&1 | grep joydev_enum_device 
trace:dinput:joydev_enum_deviceW Enumerating the linux Joystick device: /dev/input/js0 (PS3/USB Cordless Gamepad)

The event file in question (js0) was only accessible by root, so I chown-d it to be accessible by me. What can/should I do next?
