Rumble Support for Xbox Gamepads - Patch Submitted for Review (Again)
This patch adds rumble support to the Xbox One, Series X|S, and Elite Series 2 pads.
DualSense Edge Gamepad Getting Early Linux Support
As if it wasn’t enough of a surprise that Sony created an official driver for the DualSense on Linux a few years ago, they’ve now upped their game and have added initial support for their upcoming DualSense Edge – basically Sony’s answer to the Xbox Elite gamepad. The funny thing is the controller won’t even be on shelves until early next year. But by sending the patch in this early, hopefully it will be merged into the Linux kernel by the time you get your hands on one.
Linux Patch for Xbox Series Gamepad Vibration Support Submitted for Review
Earlier today Phoronix had noticed a new patch being submitted for the Microsoft HID Linux driver. The patch was created by Google engineer Siarhei Vishniakou, who is “in communication” with engineers from Microsoft. Last year, a firmware update had apparently broke the rumble compatibility with Xbox One controllers. This patch fixes the problem, and also works with the newer Series X|S controllers. It might even work with the Elite pad.
