Hey all,

I'm using Mame on Arch Linux. I was following the instructions for stable controllers but realized MAME doesn't find my devices. Only "system keyboard" and "system mouse" get picked up. I've tried up to the latest mame, v0.230, and my mame config has joystick, mouse, and lightgun enabled (I've also tried with the associated CLI flags). Sudo doesn't seem to have an effect, and Steam correctly detects my controller. Has anyone else run into this, or have any suggestions? Below is my verbose output.
