The buttons on my Xbox one controller don't work with this for some reason.

If you're having problems installing this, try out this great guide:

This package s working nicely for me, except when I reboot my computer, my wireless controller won't connect on the first try. I have to remove the batteries and connect a second time to get the lights shining correctly etc.

Sorry for not updating this package in quite some time. Xbox One controller support has been added upstream and I also blacklisted the original xpad module in favour of the steamos "steamos-xpad" module.

Yeah, it's odd. Let me know if you would like me to test anything.

glad it worked for you, but that begs the question as to why the new xpad module wasn't prioritized over the stock one...
Maybe I should change the PKGBUILD so it installs the module as 'xpad-steamos' and blacklist the stock xpad module in /etc/modprobe.d to avoid this issue once and for all.

That's done it. Thanks!

modinfo points to the right file now and the lights on the controller do what they're meant to.

Sorry for not responding earlier...
Ok that's weird, well try manually removing /lib/modules/3.15.5-2-ARCH/kernel/drivers/input/joystick/xpad.ko.gz and then do `depmod -a 3.15.5-2-ARCH`. See which module `modinfo xpad` points to.

I unplugged the receiver and did the two modprobe commands but the lights still flash and the modinfo command has the same output as before

filename: /lib/modules/3.15.5-2-ARCH/kernel/drivers/input/joystick/xpad.ko.gz

Ah, yes I renamed the dkms module instead of steamos-xpad-dkms it is now just steamos-xpad so it would have been `dkms remove steamos-xpad-dkms/0.2 --all` actually.
But dkms was successfull this time around so you should have the patched xpad module now. If the old one was already loaded, unplug your gamepad and do `modprobe -r xpad` followed by `modprobe xpad`.
