QJoyPad takes input from a gamepad or joystick and translates it into key strokes or mouse actions, letting you control any X-Windows program with your game controller. This lets you play all those games that for some reason don't have joystick support with your joystick.

I use this program to play Minecraft with a ps3 controller and it works flawlessly for that purpose, but the program contains a bug that makes the mouse fly uncontrollably across the screen if the controller is accidentally unplugged.

This works flawlessly in Mint 19, very nice if you suffer from mouse arm syndrome, I use it for a number of games that only use mouse, I even use it for surfing sometimes. On a windows machine I use Joystick 2 Mouse which is very similar.

Very useful for games with poor controller support. Runs quietly in the background, otherwise you may need to run it with --notray to edit your setup - that needs to be fixed.

Great for playing Undertale and other such keyborad-only games!
