    Brand new to all this.

    I have a Raspberry Pi 2
    Retropie 3.0 Beta installed via SD card
    Speedlink Strike Wired Gamepad
    USB Keyboard

    I’ve been following these instructions on lifehacker:

    I got as far as booting up the Pi with my gamepad connected. The gamepad configuration screen appears and it lets me press the keys for each command, but then won’t do anything else. After the final button has been set, the menu moves back to the top, with the command for ‘UP’ highlighted, but it is frozen there. I can’t move to the ‘ok’ button, and the keyboard doesn’t seem to let me do anything except exit using F4 and starting the process again.

    Help would be appreciated!
