Bug Description

On Ubuntu 13.04
Trust 16784 joystick is detected on /dev/input/js0, but if i cat it i don't get any input (this is a simple way to test an input device: if pressing buttons you see scrambled characters, it works). Also, any calibration program detects it but can't get any axis or button.
After connecting it, the leds start to blink. Pressing the home button makes them steady, but nothing changes. That's to show the device is turned on.
On Windows it works normally.

Tried it on Asus X501A laptop, both on usb2 and usb3 port.
I'm using latest xserver-xorg-input-joystick (1:1.6.1-1build1) and latest kernel (3.8.0-25.37), with every joystick-related package installed.

I attached some informations on this device

note that the only use for x-x-i-joystick is if you want to move the cursor with the joystick instead the mouse... it's not needed for games etc
