Interface indexes will be assigned automatically in ascending order, i.e., the
first device will be mapped to slcan0, second to slcan1, and so on.

Use Microsoft X-Box 360 Gamepad with GNU/Linux

# By default, X-Box 360-compatible controllers are detectable but dysfunctional because they expect the host
# to send a particular USB control transfer with some sort of initialization command.
# This udev rule will invoke a trivial Python script automatically when the gamepad is connected that emits
# the required initialization command.
# Integration:
# 1. Put this rule into /etc/udev/rules.d/51-xbox-gamepad.rules
# 2. Install pyusb for the root's Python: sudo pip install pyusb
# 3. Reload udev rules as root: udevadm control --reload-rules && udevadm trigger
# Convert all video files in the current directory into gifs.
# Silently overwrite existing files.
# This is useful for working with matplotlib animations.
