    to create a nice retropie box, I try to use 2 old Neo-Geo PS3 USB Controller.

    They are working fine in MAME, but EmulationStation doesn’t recognize them, so I have to keep a keyboard plugged at the same time.

    It seems they are only working with linuxraw old driver :
    retroarch-joyconfig –driver linuxraw
    find : EXAR USB JOYSTICK PS3 on /dev/input/js0 (and js1)
    but default driver can’t find them.

    Any idea? Is it a configuration problem, or a missing driver?
    They are supposed to be PS3 so they should work, but I know they have a strange behaviour: the stick is read as an analog stick, not as the main pad of usual PS3 controllers.

    Thanks. I keep on searching and add info if I find.



    Hi I finally found the solution for my problem, so I explain it in case someone else needs it:

    It’s a probleme with udev configuration, the new device manager used by SDL2.

    To make my joystick work, I had to setup rights for my user + add the INPUT_ID_JOYSTICK tag on it to be recognized as the Joystick.

    I created the following file:

    with this content:
