[Solved] Can't disable left joystick controlling cursor

Due to a silly experiment I failed, I had to reinstall Arch, and noticed that my left analog stick controls mouse movements on my Afterglow PS3 corded controller.  It worked normally before, and it happens with another controller I have that was made for PCs.  I managed to get the controller's buttons to work in ZSnes from the repo fine with no tweaking.  I have tried creating a 10-joystick.conf by reading the manpage, but haven't gotten anywhere as far as actually preventing the joystick from controlling the mouse.  I think it's a small error I've made, but I can't seem to find anything to help beyond the manpage, or find an error in my configuration.

My current /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-joystick.conf:

Found more info, from my /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

It seems to be udev, rather than Xorg, I think.  I'm still working with 10-evdev.conf and 10-joystick.conf to solve the problem.  Whenever I stop the analog stick from moving, the keyboard stops working as well.

EDIT:  FIXED:  I needed to modify my 10-evdev.conf to assign my joysticks with "MatchIsJoystick".
