Logitech F310 controller drift
robvv 10 Jul
Evening all,

I've very recently upgraded my OpenSUSE Tumbleweed system with a new CPU, motherboard and RAM but have kept keyboard, mouse and gamepads etc.

I didn't reinstall the OS but I did re-detect things such as the audio device. Everything has gone well, but I have been experiencing problems with my two F310 gamepads which have been drifting and/or unresponsive in games such as Edge of Eternity and Tallowmere 2.

My xboxdrv.conf reads as follows:
[xboxdrv]
silent = true
mimic-xpad = true
next-controller = true
[xboxdrv-daemon]
dbus = disabled


The gamepads are detected fine by Steam as far as I can tell, and I have run Steam's calibration tool. I've also tried the gamepads in different speed USB slots to see if that's the cause.

Can anyone suggest something that I might have missed?

My PC info can be found in the link above.

Cheers :-)

You don't need xboxdrv, the Logitech F310/710 gamepads work natively in both Linux and Steam. Try without it. I find the dinput mode works better usually with my F710's but you can try both modes.

Thanks for this. I have now removed the driver and the F310s do indeed still work :-) However, by chance I have solved the drifting and unresponsiveness by removing the Steam Controller dongle! I hadn't been using it for a while but had kept it plugged in 'just in case'.
