I have bought a gamepad adapter called the MAGIC-NS adapter. It supports PC, PS3, and the Nintendo Switch: link

I am currently trying to get it to work with my Xubuntu 17.04 installation. I am using an xbox one s controller. There are three (maybe four) modes that the adapter can transmit data in. D-Input, X-Input, and whatever the Nintendo Switch uses.

When lsusb is run:

  • D-Input shows Bus 002 Device 007: ID 0079:18d2 DragonRise Inc.
  • X-Input shows Bus 002 Device 007: ID 0079:18d3 DragonRise Inc.
  • Nintendo Switch shows Bus 002 Device 009: ID 0f0d:00c1 Hori Co., Ltd
  • Other mode (which isn't advertised) shows Bus 002 Device 010: ID 057e:2009 Nintendo Co., Ltd

Things I have tried installing to get it to work:

  • xboxdrv
  • jstest
  • sixad

CEMU and FCEUX both recognize the gamepad (without the above installed), but do not recognize inputs. Minetest does not recognize the device at all.

  • @DavidFoerster I have restructured the question. Hopefully this is better. – Qiangong2 Sep 5 '17 at 1:58
