Configuring and using a Radio Shack Game pad 26-8010 in Xubuntu 16.04

Radio Shack game pad Cat No. 26-8010

While it's nice to have a wireless game controller like the XBox 360 controller to wirelessly control games, if you're on a really tight budget there are a lot of inexpensive USB game pads ($5-$10 range) can be found all over the place these days. Recently our refurbishing project had an old Radio Shack 26-8010 controller dropped off to us. As it turns out the RS 26-8010 works on Xubuntu/Ubuntu 16.04 without a whole lot of effort.
