Using a gamepad

So I recently got my machine up and running using standard LinuxCNC distro.
I spent a while setting up a gamepad (controller) to jog my machine about and all was well.
Soon after I decided to use Gmoccapy and the gamepad stopped working.
I forgot about it quite quickly till today when I was doing a clean up and found the gamepad!

So, any way to get a gamepad that was working fine with Axis to work with Gmoccapy?

Yes, it should work, as that is no gmoccapy problem.

Do you have some more details?

Ok, this is strange.
It was working before with Axis - switched to Gmoccapy and it stopped working - back to axis and its not working anymore.
I will have to check all configs again.

Ok, this can be ignored. I was stupid!
I initially had some trouble getting Gmoccapy working so I changed some things around in my ini file which included moving the gamepad code to a separate hal file, which for some reason failed to load. When the code is back in custom hal file everything works well.

Sorry about this
