I think I screwed something up in a HID library when trying to install a PS3 controller not long ago, as the PS3 controller never worked right, and now when I try to connect an Xbox 360 controller, the mouse cursor jumps to the top-left corner of the screen and neither it nor the keyboard will respond.

any idea what I ought to purge to fix this? thanks!

Fixed. I Removed xserver-xorg-input-joystick and used jstest to correct a mis-mapped axis.
