    jtest /dev/input/js0 or js1

    start working but no button or axis is detected, so I think that raspberry find correctly the device but drivers are not the right.
    the raspberry uses LinuxRaw but could i use another like dinput?

    Are there any LED’s to show that the unit is powered on?

    Yes the analog led on controller works normally, also the led on the usb device works: If any button or axis is pushed/moved the led start “glittering”

    I’d guess this is a driver problem, if it is a generic driver then you may be able to download the package and install it then hopefully it will run, but you will have to find out what drivers it was using in ubuntu and see if these can be used with the raspberry pi.

    or

    this:

    I’ve been trying to debug this one on my Gentoo system.  I’ve found that if  
    you run usbmodules with the –device paramter will have the side effect of  
    allowing the adapter to work.  
      
    For example:  
    Plug in adapter [joydev is loaded, /dev/input/js0 is created]  
    cat /dev/input/js0 [a few bytes, then silence; never any response from pushing  
    buttons]  
    usbmodules –device /proc/bus/usb/###/### [no output]  
    cat /dev/input/js0 [now it responds to button presses

    cant do it
