BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien

xbox 360 wired controller and Linux
Just not working with Runner2.

I've installed xboxdrv, which recognizes the device. However, nothing I do seems to make a difference with the game. It never sees the stick and I'm stuck as to what to try? Google hasn't shown a lot of suggestions.

Help is appreciated.

xboxdrv only seems to work if you use --mimic-xpad

I just got my wireless xbox controller working, the other games are working fine when I start xboxdrv with the following command: xboxdrv --quiet --silent --dbus session. but runner2 didn't recognize this. After a little search I found out that the following command does work:
xboxdrv --quiet --silent --mimic-xpad --dbus session.
If you got that running and start runner2 and you will see that the press space etc. is changed with press 'A'

I was running into the same problem and I finally figured it out. The game expects to use the default SDL controller, so you need to modify the Steam launcher options for the game like so:
SDL_JOYSTICK_DEVICE=/dev/input/js1 %command%

Notes:
1) Replace "/dev/input/js1" with the device returned by xboxdrv ( it is probably js1 )
2) You must do this in the Steam settings, this option is ignored from the command line
