I have the Mi gamepad. It works well.

But this is what I had to do to prevent the controller moving the mouse cursor: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ga ... ling_mouse

What I had to do to get the gamepad to stop controlling the mouse was to open a terminal.

In the terminal type:

Code: Select all

gksudo xed /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/51-joystick.conf
Then in the text editor that opens, paste the following:

Code: Select all

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "joystick catchall"
        MatchIsJoystick "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "joystick"
        Option "StartKeysEnabled" "False"       #Disable mouse
        Option "StartMouseEnabled" "False"      #support
EndSection
When you reboot, it should work.
