Since there are many games ported and many others coming for Linux and you may also know about Valve's Steam. Most of the people use to play games using joystick, so if you have xbox controller and can't configure it on your Ubuntu/Linux Mint then here is good news for you. Now you can configure Xbox controller on Ubuntu/Linux Mint and play games.
This is a Xbox/Xbox360 gamepad driver for Linux that works in userspace. It is an alternative to the xpad kernel driver and has support for Xbox1 gamepads, Xbox360 USB gamepads and Xbox360 wireless gamepads, both first and third party. The Xbox360 guitar and some Xbox1 dancemats might work too. The Xbox 360 racing wheel is not supported, but shouldn't be to hard to add if somebody is interested.
In addition to all the Xbox related stuff, the driver also has native support for the Thrustmaster Dual Power 3 gamepad, including rumble and can be used on top of the regular Linux joystick driver.
Unlike stock xpad kernel driver, xboxdrv provides a wide variety of configuration options: it allows you to simulate keyboard and mouse events, remap buttons and axes, apply autofire, invert axis, tweak axis sensitivity, emulate throttle and rudder controls and send macros.
