    hello first post on here great forum, I’ve been setting up my raspberry pi with retropie and can’t get the wireless xbox 360 controller to work in game. When i load a game on SNES it loads the XboxGamepad(userspacedriver).cfg retroarch file however in terminal when i type
    sudo nano XboxGamepad(userspacedriver).cfg
    in the /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/configs file
    it returns
    -bash: syntax error near unexpected token `(‘
    is there anyway i can delete the file or access it in a different way?
    thanks in advanced.

    Can you see the file in the directory when you do ls -lah ?

    If so when you type sudo nano – if you then type an X then ‘tab’ it should autocomplete the filename – that will ensure it is spelt exactly.

    You need to escape the ( ) characters like this XboxGamepad\(userspacedriver\).cfg or use TAB for autocomplete
