For whatever reason I can never get any of my controllers to work properly on Ubuntu. The main one I want to get working is the Xbox 360 controller (wired, not wireless). It detects the L and R triggers as axis which causes serious issues in a majority of games. I press any of the triggers and it suddenly makes the game unplayable. A similar issue occurs with the PS3 Controller.
I thought that if I bought a PC game controller it would fix my issue...but man was I wrong. Is there some type of secret method to getting this to work...I'm so irritated!!!
Even configuring inputs for emulators is a pain. If I press say "A" once it shoots the entire list down with Button 1.
