I'm trying to create a ubuntu based mame for a friend, but I got stuck when installing wah!cade. when I try to set up filters i get this error

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/win_filter.py", line 245, in on_cboLists_changed
self.load_filter()
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/win_filter.py", line 261, in load_filter
self.create_initial_filter()
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/win_filter.py", line 313, in create_initial_filter
self.dlgwait_pulse)
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/filters.py", line 367, in create_initial_filter
gd = mi.next()
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/filters.py", line 271, in get_xml_game_item
d['controller_type'] = _controllers[ctrl.attrib['type']]
KeyError: 'joy'


and when i quit the setup and try just launching wah!cade by itself I get this error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "wahcade.py", line 76, in <module>
app = WinMain(options)
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/win_main.py", line 300, in __init__

self.pop_games_list()
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/win_main.py", line 1368, in pop_games_list
self.emu_ini)
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/filters.py", line 367, in create_initial_filter
gd = mi.next()
File "/usr/share/games/wahcade/filters.py", line 271, in get_xml_game_item
d['controller_type'] = _controllers[ctrl.attrib['type']]
KeyError: 'joy'

any help would be appreciated.

you are probably using the old Wahcade, which is no longer maintained.
You should try Sairuks Mahcade https://www.mameau.com/mahcade/ which is more recent and better maintained.
