With steam package version, the steam controller is no longer working for me. There seems to be a permission problem originated from the use of the "uaccess" TAG, since using custom rules with MODE and GROUP instead works just fine.

Additional info:

sddm: 0.13.0-2
systemd: 228-3

- Using SDDM and Xfce, no custom stuff, not even a config for sddm
- loginctl shows my session in seat0
- Default udev rules in package, not working:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="28de", MODE="0660", TAG+="uaccess"
KERNEL=="uinput", SUBSYSTEM=="misc", OPTIONS+="static_node=uinput", TAG+="uaccess"

- Custom udev rules, working (me being in the steam group)

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="28de", MODE="0660", GROUP="steam"
KERNEL=="uinput", SUBSYSTEM=="misc", MODE="0660", GROUP="steam", OPTIONS+="static_node=uinput"

Steps to reproduce:

- Launch Steam
- Plug in Steam Controller
- Try to do anything with it
This task depends upon
