    I have just had the RetroPie GPIO Adapter turn up today and soldered on the few bits that needed it. I pluged into the RaspberryPi and ran the to install the drivers (which seemed to go okay) and then enable it with SNES bindings.

    As far as I can see there were no errors at either stage but i have no js0/1 in /dev/input/. The second stage said that it had detected V1 of the board.

    Am I missing something out? How can I check that the files and interface are all working correctly?

    Many thanks for any help you can provide 😀



    Just to make sure: You need to install SNESDev and not the gamecon driver. The second half of the article at

    Getting Started with the RetroPie GPIO Adapter

    explains the software setup for the RetroPie GPIO Adapter.

    Hope that helps!?



    Found the issue with my situation. The firmware for the RPi had been updated since the last issue of the drivers so they were attempting to download a file that wasn’t there.

    Let the author know and he updated with the new headers 🙂
