Gamepad recognized, but does not work

Hello everyone,

I tried using my Trust GXT 540 Gamepad on Manjaro Linux. It's Layout is identical to an XBox 360 gamepad an it's also recognized by lsusb as such: Microsoft Corp. Xbox360 Controller. I use xboxdrv but have also tried to use xpad, but no input is recognized. This is my xboxdrv configuration file:

silent = true
device-name = "Microsoft Corp. Xbox360 Controller"
mimic-xpad = true
deadzone = 4000

dbus = disabled

This is the status of the driver daemon:

● xboxdrv.service - Xbox controller driver daemon

When running jstest, I get the following result:

Driver version is 2.1.0.
Joystick (Microsoft X-Box 360 pad) has 8 axes (X, Y, Z, Rx, Ry, Rz, Hat0X, Hat0Y)
and 11 buttons (BtnA, BtnB, BtnX, BtnY, BtnTL, BtnTR, BtnSelect, BtnStart, BtnMode, BtnThumbL, BtnThumbR).
Testing ... (interrupt to exit)
Axes:  0:     0  1:     0  2:-32767  3:     0  4:     0  5:-32767  6:     0  7:     0 Buttons:  0:off  1:off  2:off  3:off  4:off  5:off  6:off  7:off  8:off  9:off 10:off

Thanks in advance for any advice or solution.
