USB Gamepad recognized by Plasma 5 but no longer by Steam/antimicro


It was working fine a few days ago. Plasma 5 picks it up and key presses (check attached screenshot). Steam says "No Controllers Detected." antimicro says "No Joysticks have been found."

I tried the gamepad with antimicro on 14.2 and it works. It was working earlier this week on my Current install. Could an update earlier this week affected it?

Same thing here with my XBOX 360 controller. It works with KDE input settings and a couple of emulators and games, but does work not in steam or a couple other games and emulators. All were working fine before my updating current today after about 10 days from last update

Some 32bit compatibility package missing from the multiib set (assuming you are on 64bit Slackware)?

I have all of multilib installed except "alsa-plugins-compat32-1.2.2-x86_64-1compat32."
Code:

I meant, perhaps there's a 32bit Slackware package that I omitted and that I still need to add to the multilib 'compat32' set?

I don't think it is that unless something new added to Slackware changed something but I don't understand how that could affect antimicro? antimicro stopped picking up the gamepad and I built that as 64 bit. On a relative's computer I have Slackware Current64 installed too with multilib and Plasma 5 and it hasn't been updated since last weekend. antimicro picks up my gamepad on it. antimicro binds keyboard keys to gamepad buttons. I installed the updated Steam slackbuild this week and udev is complaining about:
Code:
bash-5.0# dmesg | grep steam
[    4.009782] udevd[234]: invalid key/value pair in file /lib/udev/rules.d/60-steam-input.rules on line 42, starting at character 82 ('u')
[    4.025663] udevd[235]: invalid key/value pair in file /lib/udev/rules.d/60-steam-input.rules on line 42, starting at character 82 ('u')
[    7.363302] udevd[708]: invalid key/value pair in file /lib/udev/rules.d/60-steam-input.rules on line 42, starting at character 82 ('u')
[   17.500501] udevd[709]: invalid key/value pair in file /lib/udev/rules.d/60-steam-input.rules on line 42, starting at character 82 ('u')
I think that has been there for awhile. That is what the slackbuild installed. I haven't touched them.

Code:
bash-5.0# lsusb
Bus 004 Device 004: ID 0925:0005 Lakeview Research Gamtec.,Ltd SmartJoy PLUS Adapter

According to https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=256943 the new libwacom in current is the problem and patching with https://github.com/sbstnk/libwacom/c...8bca923ae6ecb1 per https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/p...c4a09cfeb25905 solves the problem.

In /lib/udev/rules.d/65-libwacom.rules line 22 change
Code:
ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}="0", ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=""
to this
Code:
ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=="0", ENV{ID_INPUT_JOYSTICK}=""
and reboot.

Everything now works as it should, at least on my end.

Thanks for the libwacom update! I'm marking this as solved.
