I have a gamepad Tronsmart Mars G02 which is connected to my laptop by USB transmitter.
Previously it worked without any problems on Ubuntu 16.04. But I replaced my HDD and installed Ubuntu 18.04 and now I cannot make gamepad working.
Here is a part of dmesg:

Here is a list of items from the evtest command:

I tried to choose 12 and 14 but didn't receive any reaction on gamepad buttons pressing.
So, it seems like ubuntu sees my gamepad but doesn't recognize any buttons click or stick moves.
Any ideas what to check or how to configure the gamepad?
