Recently I discovered my game pad was acting like the mouse in my Linux Mint 13 Maya. It was really cool feature but It's not what I need all the time.

I fixed it over at Ask Ubuntu.

Anyway, Sometimes I just want to play Mupen64Plus so I was wondering if there's a way to turn on/off the xserver-xorg-input-joystick package. Is this possible?

Use xinput float to detach it from the virtual core pointer.
