A joystick events to mouse events converter


Js2mouse converts joystick events into mouse events, so the user can use his joystick/gamepad as a pointer instead of the mouse. It works with any kind of joystick (analogic or digital) and with any kind of program (X, GPM, etc.). Js2mouse doesn't need root privileges. It can emulate PS/2 and IMPS/2 protocols, and joystick keys can be assigned.
