Controller Doesn't Work on Linux
I have a Logitech Precision controller. The controller works great for a lot of things, including SMB on Windows on the same machine. It doesn't work with this game on Linux, for whatever reason. Steam seems to detect the controller just fine, but SMB doesn't.

Any suggestions? I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit), I've also tried on Ubuntu 12.04 with no luck.

I can't really help you because I don't have your controller/set-up.

However, I'd like to report that my logitech f710 works on arch linux 64bits.

I have the same issue - Ubuntu 14.04 64bits, my gamepad works on Steam (Big Picture) and other steam games, but SMB doesn't seem to see it...

Try Big Picture mode. In the settings you can configure your controller. Then just start the game and it should work.

Same problem here. I had tried Big Picture mode, but can't configure all the buttons (axis). Playing the game there is only up or down, and left or right, but not all together...

i have this problem to in ubuntu gnome 15.4

i install ubuntu_xboxdrv from

By default, triggers are not enabled as z-axis, but as buttons. To change, edit /etc/default/xboxdrv and change TRIGGERS_AS_BUTTONS to false.

now if i start play SMB in BigPicture mode - gamepad (xbox360controller) work good.
but if i start play SMB in standart steam window (not BigPicture) gamepad not work in SMB.

The steam controller was not working properly on my Desktop but perfectly on my laptop (both on Debian 9). Many games where affected (SMB, Skullgirls, Don't Starve & Don't Starve together), but other not (L4D2, CS:GO, Portal2).
I found a fix here:
[solved][linux]steam controller not working
Simply use a terminal to type:

sudo chmod 666 /dev/uinput

Now, the steam controller I perfectly detected by all games !
