Ubuntu 17.10 and problems with Steam Controller

QuoteUpdate. Steam client update at 30.9.2017 caused this problem propably. Now generic game controller support must be disabled in the big picture mode controller settings. Shut down your controller, disable generic game controller support and turn your controller on again.
That doesn't seem likely to me, because the problem only started when I upgraded to Kubuntu 17.10. There are no problems with earlier versions like 16.04.3 and 17.04. Unless it's a combination of 17.10 and the latest Steam client? I'm hesitant to update and try it, because if it doesn't work, it'll mean having to reinstall my OS again.

Of course, if your current setup works better don't touch for a while Just threw it here in case someone needs different options for a similar problem to any of the related here

So I finally bit the bullet and upgraded to 17.10 after disabling generic controller support... and everything is working as expected! I fired up Mad Max and could navigate the menus with the controller.

I'll have to do some more testing later to be see if generic controller support was the culprit, but for now, I'm just happy that it's working.
