Can you use the gampad to control the mouse pointer instead of the trackball?

The trackball on my A06 Dev Term is starting to fail. Is there a way to use the gampad to control the mouse pointer instead of the trackball?

how is your trackball failing?

Thank you for the response. So happy that there is an option here. I will give it a shot.

I think that the trackball in my Dev Term is dirty because it can’ move the pointer left (up, down and right work fine).

One moment, I’m just updating the fw. A few minutes.

Edit: alright v5 is ready. Easy installer included.

Or, if you do not want to tinker with your keyboard firmware, apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-joystick.
