Disabling mouse control via XBOX controller on Manjaro/Arch

Not sure if somebody has this issue, but on my computer I can move mouse via controller, you might think it is cool, well yes, but when you press top side buttons, mouse keeps going up, even when you are not pressing anything, which is very annoying. Luckily fix is easy too:
sudo pacman -R xf86-input-joystick
Also please note that this will NOT prevent you from using xbox controller in games, it will continue to work just fine, it will only no longer work as mouse input in your system.
After you remove that package simply reboot the system and all should be OK.
