    Hello,

    I installed Kodi through retropie_setup.sh and I was wondering how to set it up to use a controller. I’ve had a quick look but I can’t seem to find any config file.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is there a way to navigate Kodi with USB controlers other than XBox 360 controllers?

    normally you just edit the keymap.xml and activate the gamepad support in the settings but for some reason the whole setting isn’t there so we can’t map it.

    Hey guys, i was able to get my cheap-o usb gamepad working to control kodi. I wrote a short post on the info i found and my config file here. The key thing was that the xboxdrv can both emulate a 360 gamepad with a random input source AND emulate a keyboard using the emulated 360 gamepad at the same time.

    Seebach,
    I would really like to control Kodi with my USB SNES controller. I read your blog post you linked but am unclear. I installed Kodi from the experimental section of the Retropie setup script. What are the steps needed to get my USB SNES controller working in Kodi?

    Hi
    No update on this? i’m trying to get my ps3 controller to work with kodi. I’ve followed the tutorial above but its for xbox controllers…

    I’ve been doing the keymaping, making sure the name of the joystick was the one in “cat /proc/bus/input/devices”

    but same as you guys, the option “Enable joystick and gamepad support” is not available in the input devices menu…
