Hello Jens,

you should first check, if your joystick is supported by linux. I find 
the "jstest" program useful to determine if all axes, buttons of the 
joystick are working. If you don't have it you could try building your 
own: http://packages.debian.org/stable/utils/joystick

Note that you may require a kernel module for your joystick, which may 
not be compiled/installed yet.

If your joystick is working you can try aseqjoy to map it to an alsa 
midi controller:
