I’m actually a bit closer here. Rather than work with the config at the command line (via ssh) I’m working with the Gamepad config on bootup. I’ve got it almost working. Seems I’ve got the buttons working fine, but can’t get the joysticks going now.
odd… I have 2 of the x-arcade solos (one internally configured for player 2, so I don’t have to sit that close to the other person playing 😉 ) and both work fine out of the box as keyboard devices… I essentially have 3 keyboards connected to the Pi (actual KB, and 2 separate solo sticks). I know the board is the same in the solo as it is in the dual tank-stick… not sure why it’s timing out. *shrug*
(sorry, not adding much, but at least you know it can work)
