How make my joystick work to play OnLive streamming games under PlayOnLinux, i'am with Lubuntu LXDE 13.10 and i use Wine 1.5.8. on PlayOnLinux that supposly should work with joystick but dont.

I already tested the joystick with jstest-gtk and iam able to calibrate it there and all buttons works so the problema dont come from Lubuntu recognising or not because actually this test proves that it does.

Sounds exactly like a question made on ubuntu irc chanel...perhaps the same person? Anyway, did you check the wine app database for the status of this app? –  xangua Nov 21 '13 at 11:13
Yes i did, Angel Salinas Huerta. They actually have a OnLive Wine VErsion, is 1.3.X , i think the joystick version is 1.5.8 and upper , but i can still find a version that could able to load OnLive without errors, upper then 1.5.8 but i still try . The joystick version 1.5.8 load well, but joystick dont work with OnLive games made for joystick. If someone have a solution, please tell me. Angel Salinas Huerta, are you able to play OnLive under PlayOnLinux or directly with Wine with your joystick. Please test it for me too.Thanks! –  user218098 Nov 21 '13 at 19:54
