I know that Ubuntu 12.04 supports the 360 controller / gamepad but for some reason it does not work properly in Linux Mint 14. I have the same issue that this guy has... viewtopic.php?f=90&t=116836

Is there any way I can submit a bug or something to the Mint developers? With Steam now out, we need 360 controller support in Mint to play games.

I got my Saitek controller to work just fine a few years ago. The bigger question is why aren't you using a mouse and keyboard? :wink: (if you think you can play TF2 well with a gamepad, you are in for a big surprise)

I've been trying to play "The Cave" and I think that really needs a controller.

Search for "jstest-gtk" @ software center - worked for me. It even lets you play games with wine (I'm using crossover) in multiplayer with 4 controllers.
