View Full Version : [ubuntu] Xbox 360 Controller Not Working

September 23rd, 2011, 03:01 AM
Hi guys,

I've recently become interested in gaming in Ubuntu. I've finally gotten Onlive working in Wine and really want the use of my wireless 360 controller. Bought the gaming receiver but I can't get the controller to work properly.

Onlive doesn't respond to it at all. Thinking it might be a wine problem, I tested it on native games (Frets On Fire and Braid) but still no joy. However, I tested it in XBMC and it does work but the mapping is all wrong (right on the d-pad goes up, clicking in the thumb stick goes down, etc.)

I've googled and googled but all the info I've found pertains to much older versions of Ubuntu, before it was supposed to have out-of-the-box functionality.

Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.
