After playing around with Steam I must say that in no case it was necessary to use anything else as the default kernel xpad driver.
So this is just a simple reminder howto use packages that already prepared to use as system daemon.

After installing the package xboxdrv from AUR use systemctl as root user to add a symlink to the service. For xboxdrv it looks like this:

systemctl enable xboxdrv

This will create a symlink from:




To blacklist the xpad kernel module you should take a look into:

cd /etc/modprobe.d/

If there is no blacklist.conf create one:

vi blacklist.conf

Write into blacklist.conf:

blacklist xpad

After the next reboot xboxdrv will do the job.
