In light of your responses, I tried running gemdropx under fvwm
instead of sawmill - I get the same (expected) joystick error, and
then it works as expected. So perhaps there is a sawmill|sdl
conflict? There was a new upstream sawmill release to 0.21 - perhaps
that will resolve the problem? I haven’t had time to look further

Package: gemdropx Version: 0.7-1 Severity: important

When starting gemdropx, I get the error: opening joystick: No such
file or directory, which is true - I have no joystick. However
the gemdropx window refuses to accept keyboard focus, and so the
game can’t be started. (Using sawmill-0.20.1-2 and librep5.9-2)

Thanks, -Jim Jensen jensen at computer.org
