Play with any USB controller on Linux using Steam Big Picture
I've already made a tutorial on how to play with any USB controller on Linux using xboxdrv to emulate a XBOX controller. That tutorial will enable you to play ANY game in Linux using your emulated controller, either if your game is from within Steam Library or if it is not a Steam Game. But if you want to play only Steam games, there is a much simpler way of configuring your controller using Steam Big Picture so it will emulate a XBOX controller. It's very easy and it won't take a minute:

1. Open Steam Client
2. On the top right, click on BIG PICTURE - it opens a fullscreen Steam Client
3. On the top right, click on the Gear icon (SETTINGS)
4. Click on CONTROLLER
5. Click on EDIT CONTROLLER
6. Map your controller buttons according to whatever you want
7. Click SAVE
8. Click DONE
9. Clicke DONE again
10. Click EXIT and RETURN TO DESKTOP

And that was it! Now this controller will work with all your Steam games, just open them from your Steam library as usual.

I would appreciate if some moderator fixed this topic :)

But I guess there is no moderator on this forum.

Nice feature of the Steam client! I wsn't aware of it! So this post should definitely be made "sticky"!

If you want DIFFERENT keybindings for seperate games, you can use "QJoyPad" (available in most Linux distributions, I guess) for mapping any key to any gamepad via a graphical user interface and storing the keymappings as profiles - to access them via one click on a symbol in your tray area.

QJoyPad is severely outdated, it has been abandoned. The best program which does the same thing is antimicro[www.ryochan7.com].

Use whatever you find in the repository of your Linux distribution. QJoyPad or AntiMicro.
