Hello, I’m trying to make my obscure controller work in Clear Linux but Steam doesn’t seem to be able to recognize it. Is there a way to install the “steam-devices” package in Clear Linux as in other distros the controller is recognized normally with this package. Thank you very much for your time.
This has been asked before. Your request is a duplicate of e.g. https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/1602 - we need to ship the udev rules for many of these controllers, and we don’t.
They publish the udev rules in their repo, you can pull and copy these over:
Done. These rules will be part of the
games bundle. I struggle to find a better bundle to add them as well, so, I’ll just leave them there (we can add them to other bundles if a more relevant place is found).
Oh I was talking to the OP for a local fix, if they just come with the games bundle then so much the better, thanks!
@ahkok I think these udev rules would also be good if steam is installed via flatpak.
Maybe there is a need for a separate hardware-extras bundle?
games bundle is for the most part all the system libraries that you’d need, so, I feel it’s sufficient for flatpak users as well. Maybe the name isn’t entirely obvious, but it has exactly all the bits needed.
