    I can’t seem to get my PowerA XBOX 360 controller to setup correctly. I have enough power in the system, because the controller’s home-button icon’s light is flashing appropriately. I went through the setup as described on


    but nothing is working. Anybody know how to solve this? 20 mins of internet combing has proved useless.

    Hi, install jtest:

    sudo apt-get install joystick

    And then run:

    jstest /dev/input/js0

    If the controller is recognised you should be able to test the buttons.

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.
