Another approach is to turn your joystick into MIDI messages which
then could be used by chuck. This can be done with PD on all
platforms (but I only know that it would be trivial to interconnect
MIDI-aware applications on Linux).
Other than that, there is a simple applications for linux, called
aseqjoy which does just that. http://www.terminatorx.org. It didn't
work for me, for some reason, but I have a strange joystick(?!).
