joystick working as mouse in kodi



  • Hi.
    I was happily able to configure 2 generic but nice bluetooth controllersas described here.
    Afterwards, I was able play snes and genesis games, just by changing the input_driver line configuration (to linuxraw) in retroarch.cfg

    Now, I installed kodi leia using retropie setup script, and it is working well.

    The bluetooth controllers are detected by kodi, but only the left joystick has an effect of moving a mouse, with no ability to click.

    I tried switching the driver inside kodi to "linux", "udev" and i"none", but with no effect.
    I want to use my controllers as the default configuration of xbox or snes controllers, nothing custom.

    Thank you in advance.

    This is my setup:
    Pi Model or other hardware: Zero W
    Power Supply used: 2.5A Vilros Adapter
    RetroPie Version Used:4.5.1
    Built From: Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website



  • Thats nice but you failed to mention the most important thing: the name/brand/model of your joysticks :P
    Anyway, if they are not supported as is in Kodi, your best bet is to open an issue here, as it is probably the best way to talk directly with the guy which makes the retroplayer and joystick support in Kodi:

  • Thank you @Rascas for pointg out where to ask.

    For the record: the model of the joystick is Terios T3, but I have found that it is also branded as Gen Game S3.
    I haven't found official docs of it, but digging in the forums I found how to set it in gamepad mode, working perfectly without the need of the extra adapter sold to work with a PC (basically turn it on holding HOME and A buttons).
