Xbox 360 controller on Linux Mint

Post by rodlcm » 13 Dec 2017, 05:40

Hello, everyone.

I've been trying to get my Xbox 360 controller to work for a while and nothing seems to solve this. It works out of the game with jstest, so I don't really know what could be wrong here.

I'm running Linux Mint 17.3 and xboxdrv as the adapter driver.

This isn't just a problem for OpenMW. My Xbox 360 controllers work exactly nowhere on Mint outside of Wine. It's honestly rather ridiculous, and I can't find any source for why this could be or how to fix it, either. The only answer I can come up with is that the specific controller I'm trying to use is not supported by anything. Oh, it'll sometimes respond to button presses, but inputs are completely scrambled. I'll do some more testing trying to get things to work over the holidays, but in all honesty, I'm probably just going to get some Steam controllers and use those instead.
