You can note your issue below here
My wired xbox one controllers aren't working correctly on Linux after working for over a year. It has the x and y buttons reversed and the bottom triggers aren't working in game as well. I have steam linux integration disabled as the controllers don't work at with it on.

I've tested them in Yakuza 0, risk of rain 2, and metal gear solid V with all of them suffering the same issues.

They show up as working correctly when I test them on https://gamepad-tester.com/
Note any particular steps to reproduce it below here
Plug in an xbox one controller with linux steam integration and try to play any of the games I listed above.
