I'm currently on holidays, being a student I don't have a lot of monies. So, I have a brandless portable DVD player that came with 2 small USB controllers (like playstation ones) and I was thinking of using them with my computer, playing games on the TV etc. I was planning on either writing a driver, or mapping the keys to keyboard keys, ie left is 'A' or something.
What's the best way to go around getting them working? Or even start? Doesn't matter if it's Linux or Windows, either is fine. I've done a bit of research, but have come up dry. I'd post pictures of the controllers but that'd be useless as they're... well -- generic.
Thanks in advance!
