Are you sure the joystick is on /dev/input/event1?  [linuxevent] is 
definitely a bit raw right now, but it should 'just work' on any 
/dev/input/event? device that works for other software.  You could also 
try [linuxevent /dev/input/event1].

I wrote this super basic program to give a list of all the devices on 
/dev/input/event?, maybe it'll help.

Using ReBirth is like trying to play an 808 with a long stick.
