    I downloaded v2.1 sd card image of retropie & burned it to a sd card.

    I copied a SNES ROM to the snes folder.

    Emulation station recognized my wired xbox 360 controller.

    The problem is when i launched the SNES emulator my xbox 360 controller stopped working.

    How do i make the SNES emulator recognize my xbox 360 usb controller?



    You still have to configure the controls for the retroarch framework. Emulationstation has its own control configuration that has no influence on the emulators themselves. The configuration file lies in /opt/retropie/configs/all/ if you want to do it by hand. But i think there’s also a menuoption in the retropie_setup script.

    See this link for how to configure your retroarch controls.



    I sm getting permission denied error when i try to run following command from terminal.

    ./retroarch-joyconfig >> ~/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg



    Hey joe try
    cd ~/RetroPie-Setup
    sudo ./

    And then pick Setup and run the last option configure retroarch
