    Once Kodi launches from within emulation station, the xbox controller stops working.

    Any solution? And yes, I did search.

    What I did was install the xbox driver, config it via nano.

    Only my keyboard works in kodi, which is odd because on my dedicated Kodi box the controller works fine. Plugging / unplugging doesn’t work.

    I don’t think Kodi supports controllers (or will in the future as Kodi would need to be compiled from source).

    You can try the Linux Joystick Mapper. See tutorial at link below.

    It doesn’t even see the xbox controller. I guess I will use a media remote.

    Ironic that what used to be xbox media center no longer supports xbox controllers.

    Thanks for the link, I will have to examine where ” –mimic-xpad argument” belongs.

    Kodi doesn’t even see the controller in input devices, however emulationstation does.

    Once I launch Kodi from ES, the 360 controller ceases to work.
