  Xbox 360 wireless controller light continues blinking after sync with

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm trying to use an Xbox 360 wireless gamepad with Ubuntu 13.10
  64-bit (I've confirmed that this bug affects 14.04 as well).  For
  background, the 360 wireless controller uses a receiver (also made by
  Microsoft) that plugs into a PC via USB.  The controller syncs with
  the receiver by pressing a button on both.

  The "xpad" driver in the kernel seems to support most of its
  functionality just fine, but the light on the controller continues
  flashing forever after syncing with the receiver.  Having a constant
  blinking light on one's controller is annoying and makes the user
  experience feel sloppy.

  As best I can tell, the version of the xpad driver in the mainline
  kernel hasn't been touched in a few years.  Valve, creators of Steam
  and SteamOS, have done work on the driver recently and have fixed this
  bug.  (Ubuntu PPA for this driver here:
  https://launchpad.net/~mdeslaur/+archive/steamos )

  It would be really nice if 14.04 and all future versions of Ubuntu
  could use Valve's version of this driver, as it's the version being
  actively maintained.  Without it, gamers trying out Ubuntu will get a
  low impression of Ubuntu's polish and support for gaming.
