Shell script to get a HitBox fightstick to talk work on Linux. Works for me on Ubuntu. Modified slightly from this script here: http://pastebin.com/mkbuyYdR
#!/bin/bash
# Polls Toodles PC/PS3 Cthulhu controller, preventing it from entering XBox 360
# mode. Run this script as root, then plug in the controller.
DEV_DIR=/dev/input/by-id
DEV_NAME=usb-Toodles_2008_HitBox_Edition_Cthulhu+-event-joystick
echo "Please connect PC/PS3 Cthulhu now."
# Loop indefinitely until Cthulhu controller is detected
until [ -a $DEV_DIR/$DEV_NAME ]; do

done
echo " - PC/PS3 Cthulhu detected. Ensuring connection..."
# Have Cthulhu scream into the void for a couple of seconds to ensure connection
cat $DEV_DIR/$DEV_NAME > /dev/null & CAT=$!
sleep 2
kill $CAT
echo " - PC/PS3 Cthulhu connected!"
