As with Windows, an XBox 360 controller and a generic PS2 style controller (or real PS2 controller with USB adaptor) will cover 99.9% of games.

I have a ton of different USB controllers and all of them have been picked up by Linux Mint. Compatibility depends on the individual program rather than the OS.

Thanks. There is no difference between the controllers for Xbox and windows. Just that the wireless controller requires a dongle.

Linux Mint should be able to detect your controllers instantly, regardless of type. As long as it can plug into any computer, then the OS shouldn't object to it, unless there was a misconfiguration on your part.

I highly recommend using AntiMicro for managing your gamepads. It's better to assign them by key than configure their options within each game, as the former would be much more reliable in the long run.
