[Help? :3] TF2 With Steam For Linux - 360 controller input. The Feb 14th Source Change: "Updated controller support for the Linux version", unable to use controller since.
Hi, I'm fairly new to the forums, though, not to Steam, or TF2. Anyway, my problem:
When I first started using steam for linux on around about the 12th, it worked perfectly, (with exec 360controller).
Then on the 14th, following this update (http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=9956
) which updated the source engine's controller support on linux, suddenly the buttons seemed to spam despite being released, (especially LT and RT), causing my character to glitch out, only completing a portion of an animation before trying to perform a different one, making it extremely difficult, if not impossible to shoot/attack.
Ever since the update for tf2 that followed the one on the 14th however, tf2 has not recognised any controller input at all.
What I find annoying though is that steam's Big Picture Mode, still, and has always received my input perfectly.
I have tried everything I am aware of other than using xboxdrv, which is a workaround rather than a solution. Including:
(these two Executes did nothing, and had no console output but I tried them anyway for good measure).
I have also tried to enable the gamepad in settings: the mouse settings to no avail, and in the keyboard settings, which, prior to the 14th would allow me to map controller keys in the same way I would keyboard keys, but now doesn't respond to controller input.
Distro: Linux Mint Cinnamon 14 (nadia) 64.
Kernel: Linux 3.5.0-17-generic.
Memory: 3.7 GiB
Processor: Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz x 8
Also. Do not bother to comment if you are just going to tell me to use a keyboard, as I have seen everywhere over the internet. I happen to have a disability, and some joint issues, and it's just plain rude.
That aside, please help me, I await responses eagerly? :3
Thanks in advance,
