I bought this Xbox ONE mini series controller from PowerA because I have small hands, and it's VERY comfortable. But xpad doesn't even register it. Do I have to use xboxdrv? I really don't want to, because it requires configuration whereas xpad just works.

Code:
[27012.519653] usb 3-2: new full-speed USB device number 10 using xhci_hcd
[27012.661778] usb 3-2: New USB device found, idVendor=24c6, idProduct=541a
[27012.661781] usb 3-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[27012.661782] usb 3-2: Product: Xbox ONE mini
[27012.661783] usb 3-2: Manufacturer: BDA
[27012.661784] usb 3-2: SerialNumber: 0000AEF2CED7967E


That is what dmesg says when I plug it in. There are no new devices in /dev/input.

Is it possible that xpad won't recognize it because it's a third party controller? If it works on an actual XBOX I'd think the protocol would have to be identical.

Looks like xpad supports some PowerA controllers, but not 0x24c6, 0x541a.

Read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/input/xpad.txt and /usr/src/linux/drivers/input/joystick/xpad.c

The text file suggests if you email the developers they will add your controller.

Nah, I had to return it to the store, it didn't work in Windows either, and I really need it to.

I figured out how it works, so I bought another one. I'll email the developers of xpad then. :)
