Help with xboxdrv not installed in Ubuntu 20.10 (Retropie 4.7.9)

I am running Retropie 4.7.9 on Ubuntu 20.10 on an amd64 computer. I have a "Trust GXT-540 Wired Gamepad | YULA" and I can play all sorts of videogames of different systems with different libretro cores.
This gamepad has a d-input/x-input swith and I am using d-input switch all the time with no issues.
As d-input, Ubuntu detects it as
lsusb Bus 003 Device 005: ID 145f:01c5 Trust Trust Gamepad

However, when trying to play PS2 videogames on non-libretro emulator pcsx2, the gamepad is not responsive. I was thinking making use of xboxdrv might help detect the gamepad, specifically in pcsx2. I have followed the steps
only to note there is no /etc/rc.local in Ubuntu.
To make rc.local available and rc-local service enabled and active I have followed
Now rc.local is available but installing xboxdrv from EmulationStation > RetroPie > RetroPie setup > Manage packages > drivers > xboxdrv > Install
Configuration / Options > Enable xboxdrv
is not adding any code to /etc/rc.local
and there is no file either in
At this stage I don't know what else to try so any help and advice are much appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
