Steam-devices in Silverblue?

Hello the title says it all. I switched from workstation edition to silverblue and installed steam as a flatpak but upon opening it warned me that gamepads will not work and I should check out their wiki. I did just that but it seems that Silverblue does not have RPM Fusion repo added by default should I just add it by hand and use rpm-ostree or can I install the steam-devices manually?

Nevermind I figured it out. You don’t have to add any repo there is a RPM Fusion for Fedora 36 - Nonfree - Steam repo already in Gnome Software. You just enable it and install steam-devices using rpm-ostree install steam-devices. Worked like a charm.


Confirmed this is working in Fedora Kinoite 37 as well. I needed to add the non-free RPM Fusion repo first.

$ sudo rpm-ostree install$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

and then

$ rpm-ostree install steam-devices

worked like a champ! Thanks for posting this OP.
