determine your model

I don't believe this has been updated since kernel.org's security breach. Their website has undergone changes and the 'determine your model' section is basically a dead end as soon as you get to their site.

I've updated the links to the docs on kernel.org but if we were to link to GitHub (https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/Documentation/input/joystick.txt), where Linux is now hosted, we wouldn't need to keep updating the URL for the current kernel version.

Playstation 3 Controllers via Bluetooth

when creating the udev rule, what the address is supposed to be is unclear, as one can confuse the address of the bluetooth dongle and ps3 controller, so I feel this should be specified.

Additionally, simply putting in the bluetooth address for the udev rule for the ps3 controller does not appear to work. --Ase1590 (talk) 20:21, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Xbox 360 controllers

I own an Xbox 360 wired controller. A year ago I had no success with using only the xpad module and had to use the userspace xboxdrv driver with mixed success.

I am now pleasantly surprised to see that the Xbox 360 wired controller works with the xpad module only, without any other configuration. In particular, the issues that we list, "incorrect button mapping. (discussion in Steam bugtracker)" and "not-working sync. All four leds keep blinking, but controller works. (discussion in Arch Forum)", seem to be fixed, at least for a single-controller setup.

Should we update the text to reflect that? Suridaj (talk) 22:52, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Sure, just preserve old texts as a "if you encounter problems, you can fix them as follows" Tomato (talk) 07:52, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
