Review of Linux Compatibility

The wired Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller has the USB ID 045e:028e

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 045e:028e Microsoft Corp. Xbox360 Controller

and is automatically recognized by the Linux kernel:

usb 1-8: new full-speed USB device number 5 using xhci_hcd
usb 1-8: New USB device found, idVendor=045e, idProduct=028e
usb 1-8: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 1-8: Product: Controller
usb 1-8: Manufacturer: \xffffffc2\xffffffa9\xffffffa9Microsoft Corporation
usb 1-8: SerialNumber: 01234567

An additional input device will be created by the kernel, to access the controller:

input: Microsoft X-Box 360 pad as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-7/1-7:1.0/input/input15

The controller can be used under Linux with the xboxdrv driver, e.g. to play Wii and Gamecube games in the Linux version of the Dolphin Emulator. It was successfully tested under Ubuntu 14.04 64bit and with Dolphin 4.0-4163.

If the xboxdrv is installed and the XBox 360 controller is plugged in, the already loaded driver needs to be unloaded by

sudo rmmod xpad

and

xboxdrv --silent -i x

where x is a number between 0 and 3 which selects the controller (up to four). Afterwards, the controller can be used in the Dolphin emulator.

If a controller is plugged out and in again, the commands have to be repeated. Furthermore, the controller needs to be configured in dophin (under Options->Settings and under GCPad).
