Ok, I'm getting desperate here. I've tried the xpad in-kernel module and xboxdrv. I've chmoded 666 /dev/input/js0 and /dev/input/event6 (the event device corresponding to the xbox controller). A cat /dev/input/js0 or /dev/input/event6 shows that the device works ok, SDLJoytest-GL sees the gamepad, even Stealth Bastard Deluxe (a steam game) works perfectly fine with the gamepad... so everything seems to work ok. But steam BPM still refuses to acknowledge there is an xbox 360 gamepad connected.

Is there any way to tell steam to use a certain /dev/whatever as gamepad? Or to find out why in hell steam is the only program that doesn't see my gamepad?

I'm running from inside a 32 bit chroot, BTW.

Are you running it with xboxdrv? I have no problem using my wireless xbox 360 controller in Big Picture, using the following options with xboxdrv:
Code:
xboxdrv --mimic-xpad

The only thing is, I'm running it as sudo, as for some reason it is not detected if I run it as regular user.

Yeah, I also tried with --mimic-xpad. No dice.

The worst thing is that steam prints this as soon as I start xboxdrv (as root):
Code:
Opening joystick X360 Controller

It's almost as if it's mocking me :(. All the Steam games that support joystick that I've tried (Stealth Bastard Deluxe, Cave Story+, AYIM) work ok. Steam BPM is the only one that fails.

Are you running the x86 or amd64 gentoo and are you running the stable or unstable branch? I can't even get stealth bastard deluxe to start!
