Driver, mapper and GUI for Steam Controller, DS4 and similar controllers.

Note - this snap will only work if the Steam Controller udev rules are installed on the system (see below)

Allows setup, configuration and use of Steam Controller(s) without ever launching Steam. Supports switchable profiles, sticks, pads, gyroscope input, haptic feedback and in-game rumble support. OSD, menus and on-screen keyboard for desktop and in games. Automatic profile switching based on active window. Emulates Xbox360 controller, mouse, trackball and keyboard and much more.

It is essential to install the Steam Controller udev rules on your system to access your device. Ubuntu users should run "sudo apt install steam-devices".

This snap does not yet implement any bluetooth support, nor has it been tested with any non-Steam controllers. If you would be interested in helping to implement or test these, please file an issue by following the link for the contact details.
