Qjoypad is a simple Linux/QT program that let's you emulate keystrokes and the mouse with a joystick or gamepad. This is useful for gaming when you want to configure the controller your own way rather than how the programmers set it up. It is also very useful if you have a second display such as a television and you want to fast forward or rewind through videos. You can use a gamepad as a remote control and for browsing through files.

Available for Ubuntu: 12.04, 12.10, 13.04

Version: 0.8.1-1~getdeb2

Available for Ubuntu: 12.04, 12.10, 13.04, 13.10, 14.04, 14.10, 15.04, 15.10, 16.04, 16.10, 17.04
