Phantom game controller with ASRock Mobo

I have Installed Manjaro to a friend of mine (new computer) and I was testing a game (hitman2) and it is unplayable because the system sees a controller so I can not even use the keyboard in the menus. There is no game controler but going to system settings -> input devices -> Game controller it sees a device from the Mobo as a game controller.

ASRock LED Controller

Unfortunately I do not see any way in the settings to disable it. Steam also sees the same device as a game controller and but also there is no way to disable it there.

I tried
xinput disable "ASRock LED Controller"

but it did not work, not even temporarily


sudo libinput list-devices

At this point I am lost. What I need to do to make the system not see that as a game controler?

I just found a solution

unix . stackexchange . com questions 105694 how-to-disable-a-usb-sound-device-with-udev

it is actually the second solution

ACTION=="add", ATTR{idVendor}=="0d8c", ATTR{idProduct}=="000c", RUN="/bin/sh -c 'echo 0 >/sys/\$devpath/authorized'`

in /etc/udev/rules.d/my.rules
with the right idVendor/idProduct instead as provided by


I do not want to close it as the solution as I do not know if there is a better less hacking way to do it.
