@Ufeldraku does the joystick work for that session after you configure the keys and only not work when you relaunch the emulator? Or does it not let you set the joystick keys at all?

Did you check that settings are getting saved properly into ~/.vbam/vbam.conf and that permissions on that directory and file is correct?

Can you check that your gamepad works with both jstest from the joyutils package and sdl2-jstest-git as described here:

Also, we use SDL for joystick input, perhaps try this (or another SDL game):

I am experiencing the same..
And if i specify the keys by their english names (e.g. Joy1-button1) in the vbam.config file it works until I change anything in the settings.
But if I try to set them via the user interface the configuration of the keys is deleted as soon as I press "OK" in the dialog
