I'm trying to play games with my Steam Controller on Ubuntu 14.04 with all the latest updates installed. I'm running in Big Picture Mode, and have created a file in /etc/udev/rules.d/ with the rules from this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/steamuniverse/discussions/2/490123197947211023/ Connecting the controller works fine. Navigating Steam works fine, and all of the controls react correctly when viewing the controller's Support interface.
The problem I'm having is that no configurations appear to work. It seems that the left pad AND the left stick are being mapped as the Up/Down/Left/Right keys, while the right pad is being mapped to the mouse pointer. The right trigger is being mapped to Mouse 1, and it's not clear what the other buttons are being mapped as.
No matter what configuration I apply, whether template, custom or community, I can't change these mappings as I'd like.
I've tried playing Borderlands 2, Knights of the Old Republic 2, and Portal 2 (which I figured would be a safe bet), but the controls made it impossible.
Any help would be appreciated! I'm happy to provide any info that will debug the problem further.
