Root can access game controllers but my user can't

I’m guessing I have to add my user to a group so they can access the controllers but my googlefoo is failing me.

Hello @dodgypast
I’m not a gamer but i think you have to add your user to the input group? Maybe it explains it here.

It was buried in that page for getting a PS3 controller working:

Make sure your user is in the “input” group:

usermod -aG input yourusername`

Reboot your system. Steam should now detect your PlayStation 3 controller.
