Want to play games or control any desktop application with a gamepad on Ubuntu Linux? There’s a graphical tool AntiMicroX that may help.
AntiMicrox is program used to map keyboard buttons and mouse controls to a gamepad. Useful for playing games with no gamepad support.
The program can be also used for generating SDL2 configuration (useful for mapping atypical gamepads to generic ones like xbox360).
The software offers both .deb and .appimage packages in the release page:

You can either grab the single executable
.appimage package that runs the program without install, or download the
.deb package and install it by opening terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command:
sudo apt install ./Downloads/antimicrox*.deb
