The file /dev/input/js0 is missing from my directories. I am attempting to use the joy2key plugin from the Software Center to map keystrokes to my gamepad but when I attempted to start I got the following response in the terminal:
$ joy2key -dev /dev/input/js0 -terminal joy2key - reads joystick status and dispatches keyboard events By Peter Amstutz (firstname.lastname@example.org) This is free software under the GNU General Public License (GPL v2) (see COPYING in the joy2key archive) You are welcome to use/modify this code, and please e-mail me if anything cool comes of it! Version: 1.6.3 Binary built on Dec 22 2009 at 13:45:44 Error opening /dev/input/js0! Are you sure you have joystick support in your kernel? $
I double-checked this by navigating to /dev/input in the file manager and saw no file or folder "js0".
I am running Ubuntu 12.10
