I have an HID compliant USB device that purports that it will be detected as a joystick in Linux. Whenever I connect it to my computer, there is no /dev/js0 /dev/js1 or any js at all under /dev/input.
However, it seems that /dev/input/event2 can "read" the device's data stream.
The device has the following properties:
1 Axis 6 Buttons
Why is it that it isn't being detected as a joystick (js) ? I am using Linux CentOS 5.5.
EDIT: More specifically, if you can explain/tutorial me what /dev/input/eventN (n is an integer) is... that would be helpful!
