It's definitely working, all buttons work in the KDE Control Panel and bsnes was willing to let me play all the Mega Man X I wanted with it, but I was in the mood for Sonic the Hedgehog tonight. I've also confirmed the pad works with SDLMAME.
This problem seems to be shared with ZDoom and PrBoom, which also don't seem to know the DualShock 2 even exists, though I have no idea why this happens.
Funny - I have two dual shocks plugged into my system with a USB converter, although I don't think it's the same brand. It works fine with Gens/GS, but I think you need something like QJoyPad to make them work with a lot of different programs. It depends on whether they just look for xevents, or actually look for joysticks.
