Jorge Castro from Ubuntu poked me recently (see the G+ comments there for confirmation) to let us know that Ubuntu 15.10 has already been patched for the Steam Controller, and 14.04+ others will have a patch back-ported this week.
It's really great to see them work this out so quickly, as by the time the official release date hits for the Steam Controller, we shouldn't have to face any of the issues the early adopters have.
Alan Pope from Ubuntu mentioned they had access to the hardware, so it's great to see them get in on it early. It would have been a nuisance to have to deal with this after the release, so kudos to the Ubuntu team.
For those not aware, you needed to do a little tweak to get it working correctly on Ubuntu, but this will be a thing of the past!
