I am trying to use an Xbox 360 MadCatz FightPad on Ubuntu 13.04. The main problem is that two of the buttons, corresponding to the left and right triggers on the Xbox controller, are registering as analog joysticks. While the triggers are analog on a traditional Xbox controller, their only real purpose on this gamepad is to act as buttons.
So far, I have not been able to find any utility that would allow me to remap the axis to gamepad buttons. Qjoypad can only be used to map the controller buttons to keyboard or mouse sequences. There does not appear to be an option to make the mapping in jstest-gtk, either. xboxdrv has the --trigger-as-button option, but it does not recognize the controller as an Xbox controller or even as a compatible controller (which, itself, is odd because the controller works fine on the Xbox).
