Description of problem:
The kernel sees the joystick and jstest (from joystick-1.2.15-18
package) sees the joystick but I get no "joy" when trying to use it.
Nothing happens when using the "jstest /dev/input/js0" command.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 06a3:053c Saitek PLC
2. $ ls -la /dev/input/js0
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13,1 Feb 19 18:04 /dev/input/js0
3. $ jstest /dev/input/js0
(Displays initial button status, but then....)
(Nothing happens when buttons pressed or axis moved)
Actual Results: Fascinating. Nothing happens.
Expected Results: Expected jstest to display button presses and show
(Works fine on Windows XP).
