  Could you possibly supply us with error information? Oh and you 
distribution name and kernel series number.

You know good oldIE 'uname -arm' with out the quotes in a terminal.

Sounds to me like bug inb the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) 
interpretation that wine is implementing. Have you tried a different 
distribution of make/model of joystick?

I am running Xubuntu 12.04 LTS I'de try that if i where in you're shoes.
