Hello all, thanks for taking the time to help me out.
I’m new to gaming on Linux.
I installed Red Dead Redemption 2 via the Flatpak version of Steam.
When I run the game, the L2 and R2 buttons move the game camera left or right, while tilting it upwards.
When I press on a button, or long press on a button, the button icon flashes between the Playstation and (I think), the XBox icons.
Also, the middle “touch pad” in the center of the controller does not work (if I press the touchpad, it should move the camera in and out of 3rd person mode). If I run my finger along the touchpad, it moves the camera. These two issues never existed when I played this game on Windows.
I’m in X11, so I ran
xinput --disable 'Wireless Controller Touchpad'. This does not solve the problem (although it did prevent the trackpad from functioning when I ran my finger across it in the game.
I’ve ran steam with and without “Steam input”.
I’m not sure how to resolve this very strange problem. I thought it could be the game Red Dead Redemption 2, so I installed Elden Ring, but the PS4 controller does not work at all. I tried enabling Steam Input than turning it off, but it still does not work.
Any idea how I can get this working?
Thanks for your help!
