Gamepad API support has finally landed in Gnome. A week ago, we reported that Gamepad API was being developed in Gnome which will please Linux gamers a lot. The good news is development is finished and it's almost ready for use.
Zan Dobersek, the developer says that the Gamepad API for Gtk has landed in WebKit, and though its currently disabled at compile time, impatient users can build it on their own. He adds that this situation may change in future when experimental features are introduced in WebKitGtk+.
Dobersek also added that Gnome Settings Daemon Plugin is almost done and it is currently under evaluation by Carlos Garcia Campos. After the evaluation is done, it would be added in master branch of Gnome development. This plugin will help in applying any previously saved configuration to the device on its connection.
