What are the necessary steps to connect a wireless Xbox One controller with Ubuntu 18.04?

When I try to connect the Xbox sign only blinks but when I try to connect with a cable it works in an instant. I've tried to follow the old suggestion that surrounds Xbox 360 controller and Ubuntu 14/16 but it hasn't worked.
