Can't connect xbox360 controller to Ubuntu 22.04

I can’t connect the original Xbox 360 controller to my PC with a cable. I’m trying to follow this tutorial: https://askubuntu.com/a/1438948
First, i installed xboxdrv with

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:rael-gc/ubuntu-xboxdrv

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-xboxdrv

Then i added xpad to a blacklist by editing the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
Then i unload the module withsudo rmmod xpad
Then i remove jstest-gtk and reinstall it with

sudo apt-get purge jstest-gtk

sudo apt-get install xboxdrv

sudo apt-get install jstest-gtk

And made a file /etc/default/xboxdrv with following text in:

[xboxdrv]
silent = true

# controller 1
trigger-as-button = true
dpad-as-button = true
deadzone = 4000

# controller 2
next-controller = true
trigger-as-button = true
dpad-as-button = true
deadzone = 4000

# controller 3
next-controller = true
trigger-as-button = true
dpad-as-button = true
deadzone = 4000

# controller 4
next-controller = true
trigger-as-button = true
dpad-as-button = true
deadzone = 4000

[xboxdrv-daemon]
dbus = disabled

However, when I run sudo xboxdrv, I get the following output:

— [ ERROR ] —————————————————— No Xbox or Xbox360 controller found

Then I tried to follow this tutorial: https://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/0/558748653738497361/?l=french&ctp=6
And when I run evtest /dev/input/eventxx (i’ve tried all events from 0 to 16 with controller plugged in), nothing happens.

The lsusb command gives me this output:

Bus 003 Device 017: ID 045e:028f Microsoft Corp. Xbox360 Wireless Controller

This won’t work because you have an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller and you’re trying to connect it with the (poorly-named) Play & Charge Kit cable. The kit includes a rechargeable battery pack and allows the controller to be used (wirelessly) while charging the battery pack. The cable cannot be used to receive inputs. You’ll need the Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver to use this controller.
