Hello fellow Manjaro gamers. I’m having some issues as follow:
I recently bought a Gulikit King Kong 2 Pro controller. Model NS09. This controller has four different connection mode however I’m now only trying to focus on X-input Wireless through Bluetooth because I’m having problem with this one.
For starter I’m currently on
5.15.91-1-MANJARO Kernel and
gcc (GCC) 12.2.1 20230111. All packages updated and the system is running fresh. Gnnome 43.2
On Gamepad-Tester it shows all my buttons working correctly. However in Steam, the button mapping is wrong. For example:
Right Trigger => Right Bumper
Right Bumper => Left Stick Press
Left Stick Press => Left Bumper
Some other modes include Switch Pro Wire/Wireless. Android Wireless. D-input Wired/Wireless and X-input wired. All these modes work fine with no button mapping or rumble issues.
So obviously I have searched the forums in hope of finding solution before posting. Here are some of the stuff I found and have tried but did not offer a full solution:
xpadneodriver package on AUR. So what it does to my controller is turning X-input layout into D-input. It did “fixed” the button layout however what it does is cause the rumble motor to always vibrate and turning rumble OFF in Steam DID NOT work. So obviously I had to remove the package.
linux-515-headersfor the Kernel. Did not work.
- Using Timeshift to rewind back to before the system patch. Did not work.
As far as I’m aware this might be a kernel driver bug. However I did not find any mention of Xbox driver stuff. After searching through the update log of Pamac I found that
[2023-02-03T17:19:49+0700] [ALPM] upgraded linux515 (5.15.89-1 -> 5.15.91-1)
Feb 3rd was when the Kernel patch happens however the controller was still working fine up until about a day ago so I’m not sure which package caused the issue. I currently do not have any other kernel version installed. As shown here.
I would appreciate if I can get some help here. If you have any ideas please do.
