I have an issue that is driving me insane. Please bear in mind I am completely new to the R-Pi and linux so please forgive my ignorance.
I recently downloaded and installed the RetroPie Project SD Card Image. The setup went well and I followed some Youtube videos on how to configure my Xbox Wired Controller to be used in the emulator:
It all goes fine until I follow the steps to register the controller for RetroArch. When I select option 19 it moves to a command line screen to prepare me to map my controller buttons.
However it always selects my Microsoft 600 Wired Keyboard! No matter what I do. I have tried editing the cfg file to point directly to the xboxdrv, I have tried a different keyboard, hub, controller and nothing works.
The controller worked initially in the menu and I could select different emulators but when I power down my R-Pi it then fails to work the next time I power it up.
