Is this the right sub board? Linux hosts do not detect input from Android phones with bluetooth controllers running Steam Link

Hi there,

I have this issue with all my Linux hosts when using at least Android and bluetooth controllers (like an 8bitdo SN30Pro for instance) for Steam Remote Play, inputs do not get detected by my host.

I have no idea why that’s the case or if that’s a thing of xpad and xboxdrv but when connecting to Windows hosts everything works fine.

I know there’s no exact science in this posting (i.E. terminal outputs) but I’d be happy if anyone can provide help and give me an idea how to get things working :grinning:

From what I remember it has something to do with the SteamLink itself.

I never got bluetooth to work either and just used a wireless dongle personally.
