Bug Description

Wiimote as a controller in Ardour is broken because Ubuntu (and probably debian) have other newer ways of dealing with a wiimote controller (it ends up in /dev/input/). The wiimote code is considered no longer used by the Ardour developers and so Ardour should be compiled for Ubuntu with Wiimote turned off. (Ardour ships from with Wiimote support turned off)
