    I’m having a wide range of issues configuring my controller. My first goal is to allow hotkeys to make Select+Start close the emulator. So here is what I have added to the bottom of my Retroarch.cfg file in order use my new USB controller:

    input_driver = “linuxraw”
    input_player1_joypad_index = “0”
    input_player1_b_btn = “1”
    input_player1_y_btn = “3”
    input_player1_select_btn = “6”
    input_player1_start_btn = “7”
    input_player1_up_axis = “-1”
    input_player1_down_axis = “+1”
    input_player1_left_axis = “-0”
    input_player1_right_axis = “+0”
    input_player1_a_btn = “0”
    input_player1_x_btn = “2”
    input_player1_l_btn = “4”
    input_player1_r_btn = “5”
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = “6”
    input_exit_emulator_btn = “7”

    Somehow, in the process of doing this, I’ve started getting a fatal error related containing this message: “init_video_input()” which must have something to do with no keyboard or input being detected, even when there IS a keyboard.

    Any suggestions or words of wisdom would be appreciated.



    If you change this it may work:
    input_driver = “linuxraw”
    input_joypad_driver = “linuxraw”

    Saying that, my iBuffalo has this
    input_driver = “udev”

    But to be honest I’d take all that out of the retroarch,cfg and just use the auto approach.

    My setup with the same controllers is exactly like yours with the following exception – the quotes around the numbers on the following two lines;
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = “6”
    input_exit_emulator_btn = “7”

    I removed them to

    input_enable_hotkey_btn = 6
    input_exit_emulator_btn = 7

    Maybe this helps….
