2 questions: Controllers and Playing under Linux
Does anyone here know how to set half life 2 up to use a controller? I don't have a 360 controller for windows. Although I can use the 'exec 360controller' commands, the controls don't get assigned correctly. I'm using a saitek cyborg v5 p3600, so I don't have a home button. And, every time I press the fire button, it brings up the menu (the same one you get when you press the escape button)

I understand that playing with a mouse and keyboard tends to be superior, but makes my hands sore too quickly; I believe it's a bit like arthritis. Also, the controller is much more comfortable for me, since I play on a tv and the keyboard slides off my lap all too easily.

On a seperate subject; Does anyone here play HL2 under Linux? I do that often, when I'm not making gameplay videos and I'm willing to put up with the headaches of rebooting or emulation.

Anyways, that's all I have for now.

I hope this can be done - when they finally get support for the Oculus Rift in the Linux version of the various games, I'd rather not try to use the mouse and keyboard since I cannot see them while wearing the Rift.
