    I am trying to re-config my specific emulators and keep running into some snags. Specifically, I have 2 joypads setup on an arcade style space and Player 2 (right side) registers as Player 1 and I am trying to switch them.

    I tried to run:
    jstest /dev/input/js0

    but got a “jstest: command not found” response.

    Tried with /js1 and got same response. Am I missing something?

    I don’t know if it will solve the problem of switching the controllers (both joystick and 6-buttons are the same (1 for each) “DragonRise Inc. Generic USB Joystick” device, but at the least it would get me a step closer to figuring out what is going on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.



    you don’t have jstest installed. It’s in the Debian “joystick” package.



    (1) How do I install it?

    (2) Any advice on switching P1 and P2 in games (either universally or individually)?

    2.: switch the usb port or swap hands?



    Thank you! I swear I tried switching the USB multiple times, to no avail, but of course, when you type it and I try, it works.

    Much appreciated!
