Steam for Linux

Steam for Linux

Wine + Steam Controller supported Games + USB Wired Xbox360 controller
I have been trying to use a consistent method to have a USB Wired Xbox360 controller working with Steam Games in Wine.And the only method that worked for me is the following. I'm not talking about Keyboard-Mouse remapping of course.

===================================================================
1)downloaded xbox360cemu.v.3.0
link to google code is gone so you can still find it using your favorite search engine.

2)Then copy at the root of the folder where the executable reside ,in the steam folder the following files:

dinput8.dll
xinput1_3.dll
xinput9_1_0.dll
xbox360cemu.ini

ex: /home/rcmn/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/AssassinsCreed/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common/Assassins Creed

3) install xboxdrv

4) connect the USB Wired Xbox360 controller

5) run in a terminal:
sudo xboxdrv --silent --detach-kernel-driver --trigger-as-button --ui-axismap x2=ABS_Z,y2=ABS_RZ --ui-buttonmap A=BTN_B,B=BTN_X,X=BTN_A,TR=BTN_THUMBL,TL=BTN_MODE,GUIDE=BTN_THUMBR

===================================================================
Worked with :
- Assassins Creed (Steam version) (need to be activated in the option menu)
- Dishonored (Steam version)
- deus ex - human revolution (Steam Version)
-The Witcher2
-Tomb Raider (2013)

Did not work with:
- Rayman Origins (Steam version). I tried many options but I can't get to work ,even when I push the reset function in the options menu. It does not remap to the gamepad like it should.If anyone Has any suggestions I'll be happy to hear them.
===================================================================

I'll add games.

We are talking about Wine(http://www.winehq.org/about/) + steam games. So it's not so much about Steam linux abilty to handle the Xbox360 than for Wine to recognize the gamepad.
I can confirm that this works for Farming Simulator 2013.

Works great on Batman Arkham City!

Thanks mate, I am now playing Skyrim with wired 360 controller on Ubuntu thanks to you! This info should be made more publically known, since this seems like a good way to get that controller support working in a lot of Wine games.

I don't fully understand the magic behind this, but it works....

Please note, the link in first post doesn't work, but you can find it easily with an internet search.

You can use Steam Big Picture instead of xboxdrv to map your generic controller into a XBOX controller. It works perfectly for Linux, it may work for windows too, give it a try it's very simple:

Hey Vimes,
Thank you for mentionnning the broken link. This project use to be hosted on Google Code. But it seems like it's been discontinued and used(maybe forked?) by https://code.google.com/p/x360ce/.Anyway Greenbikerdude was mentionnning above "It should be mentioned that they want to include xbox gamepad support for wine 1.6 afaik".
I haven't been playing under wine lately(only native games) so I'm not sure if wine 1.6+ kept it's promises.
I beleive ubuntu is using wine 1.4 still. So for those who would like to try they could try to add a PPA like this
https://www.winehq.org/download/ubuntu

or install playonlinux http://www.playonlinux.com/en/ (before installing read about it).

If google search fails you, don't forget there is more than just google. https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=xbox360cemu.v.3.0&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-001

Yahoo shows relevant results
Yes, it works! I´ve probed South Park The Stick of Truth and PES2015 with my Logitech F310 without any issues. Just important to add that to make work this I had to comment /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf with "blacklist xpad" on the tail. Thank you so much mate xd

Thanks for the information!

Would this work for a PS3 controller?

Definitely issues with Xbox1 controller and Wine. If the connection with the usb breaks and reconnects you have to restart the game to restablish the controller ability to respond within the game. At least that has been my experience.

As I mentioned in your own thread Revernus:

xboxdrv 360 emulation mode is still superior. BPM mappings are only honored by some games, which makes it super convenient, but completely useless if you're playing one of those games. Linux versions of Dead Island and Trine 2, to name a few I've had experience with.

EDIT:
@OP: Also, thanks for making this post. I bookmarked it. I definitely use Wine for a few Windows games, and I've ran into the xboxdrv enabled gamepad not working in Wine issue in the past.

Thanks OP! Worked basically flawlessly, with the slight exception that the controller inputs don't seem to register as activity to keep the screen saver coming on. Any idea on a fix for that other than disabling the screen saver?

Also that file seems to be getting hard to find. I'll post the link to where I found it. It's not a very good site and it tried taking me to a paid download, but there's a less obvious download button which worked right away.

Maybe I should upload the file myself so we have somewhere reliable to get it from.
