python2-dbus is a dependency.

Add this before the "scons $MAKEFLAGS" line:

sed -i '\@^#!/usr/bin/@s/env\ python/python2/' xboxdrvctl

Get a segmentation fault when trying to load :(

One traditional python-on-arch problem here:

$ xboxdrvctl
File "/usr/bin/xboxdrvctl", line 76
print "Error: --slot argument required"
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

$ head -1 /usr/bin/xboxdrvctl
#!/usr/bin/env python

Is there an argument not to add 'armv6h' to the architecture line in the PKGBUILD file? It compiles well on an RPi.

Prefer adding an udev rule like the following to make normal user able to use it or just simplify the setting.
BUS=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="045e", SYSFS{idProduct}=="028e", MODE="0660", GROUP="plugdev"
KERNEL=="uinput", MODE="0660", GROUP="plugdev"

xboxdrv 0.8.5 is released.
Any ETA for update this package?
What about default daemon mode?

first of all, thanks for the PKGBUILD!

but there's no need at all to install systemd service with executable right

-install -D -m755 "$srcdir/xboxdrv.service" "$pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/xboxdrv.service"
+install -D -m644 "$srcdir/xboxdrv.service" "$pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/xboxdrv.service"

For anyone who wants I added an aur package called xboxdrv-stable-git, which recompiles xboxdrv from stable branch in order to be compatible with latest libusbx:

Jack, could you add the key "-D" into /usr/lib/systemd/system/xboxdrv.service?
(ExecStart = /usr/bin/xboxdrv -D -c /etc/conf.d/xboxdrv)
It makes possible to launch xboxdrv as a daemon. The problem is that you can use more then one controller only in daemon mode. (proof - )
But in this case I had an error:
[ERROR] XboxdrvDaemon::run(): fatal exception: failed to get unique dbus name: Connection ":1.27" is not allowed to own the service "org.seul.Xboxdrv" due to security policies in the configuration file.
The solution is using "--dbus disabled". So, could you add the following lines into /etc/conf.d/xboxdrv as default:
dbus = disabled
