Public bug reported:

Using Dapper, fully updated.

We have a few joysticks here and, for some reason, they are not
calibrated correctly. In Windows I am able to make these usable by using
the calibration tool in Game Controllers.

There does not seem to be a comparable tool in Ubuntu which renders the
joystick fairly useless.

I have tried the packages "joystick" and "jscalibrator" but neither fix
it; joystick is very difficult to use and jscalibrator is easy to use
but doesn't seem to work perfectly. A tool more integrated into Gnome
would be excellent.
