I would like to use a joystick as a mouse with Fedora 12. I tried js2mouse but didn't work. Is there another solution? How should I configure the system?
I've never tried, but these instructions for Ubuntu look plausible, and mostly distribution-independent.
Add a section for the joystick in
Add a line with
For more control, grab the utilities in the joystick package.
try QJoyPad... it worked realy well with my joypad (it also supports joysticks) it can autodetect your joystick, number of axes, button number, also - supports joysticks with multiple axes...

I use it on Arch, but you can build it from source for Fedora.
after you install it, you should just configure the axes to act as a mouse.. you will also be able to set it's sensitivity, treshold etc...
