Quoting: childermassIs the trackpad reasonably usable, then, at least for clicking on things on the desktop (e.g. in the Steam client) when not playing a game? From what I've read, there are no dedicated mouse buttons, but you tap the trackpad to click, correct? Hmm... that could come in useful occasionally.
There's a physical button of sorts as you press the whole trackpad for a left click. No right click button though.

With Steam running you can set up a desktop controller profile, just like the Deck uses. So you can use the trackpad, have R2 as left click, L2 as right click, gestures for scroll, and so on.

I'm thinking on changing my gamepad and maybe buying a PS5 one to use it wired... It has support for Linux and from what I understand it's supported on steam... Anyone knows if it's works correctly on from software games (DS, sekiro, elden ring)? Maybe it's works but without the correct glyphs?

Thanks!!!
