ok i found out wat was the problem lol.after countless hours of searching forums . k so this is wat i did after i start jscalibrator i would save after i saved i rebooted .. and instead of opening jscalibrator i just started a game and it worked all buttons and joystick and all lol... so i m guessing once you calibrate and save and you try to play a game it some how disables joysticks and directional pads need to reboot ..lol damn linux lol but i am using more than i use windows =-)..only thing i use windows for now is play bf2 .. wich i cannt get running with wine on linux but there are a few people that did get it to run
