Logitech G29 racing wheel not recognized in Steam

Hello,
I have a racing wheel that was working a few days ago. Now it's not recognized in Dirt 4 (native), Project Cars 2 (with proton) nor steam Big picture.
I believe it stopped working after a steam upgrade (from the community package).

The wheel is recognized by the system.

$ lsusb
...
Bus 003 Device 028: ID 046d:c24f Logitech, Inc. G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel [PS3]

It's also recognized by Chrome (tested with https://gamepad-tester.com/)

I've been using the udev rules from Dirt4, located in $HOME/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/DiRT 4/share/udev/99-logitech-wheel-perms.rules, which I copied to /etc/udev/rules.d
However, I also tried removing the file and copying to /lib/udev/rules.d

There are no rules for this controller in /lib/udev/rules.d/70-steam-input.rules

When running steam from command line, I see it listed:

$ steam
...
Local Device Found
  type: 046d c24f
  path: sdl://1
  serial_number:  - 0
  Manufacturer: 
  Product:      Logitech G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel
  Release:      111
  Interface:    -1

But it doesn't show in the Controller Settings section in Big Picture.

Any ideas? Thanks

Just one.  Have you updated the kernel lately?  Did you reboot?

Compare the versions reported by pacman -Q linux and by uname -a    (assuming you are using the stock kernel,  If not, change first command accordingly)

Yes and yes.

I also have 2 kernels: 5.11.11.arch1-1 and 5.4.108-RAVEN. It doesn't work with either. But I don't see how the kernel would be a problem, given that the controller is properly recognized in Chrome.

Re: Logitech G29 racing wheel not recognized in Steam

I was looking into whether there was a kernel module that could not be found.  Not so much the kernel itself, but whether the kernel that is in memory cannot find its modules that it might need to dynamically load, this can happen if the kernel is updated and the running kernel's modules are removed by pacman and another kernels modules are installed  It can also happen if the kernel on the boot partition cannot be updated by pacman.

Sounds like it is not a problem.
