Logitech F310 Controller

Mon Apr 13, 2015 8:20 pm

Hey guys,

I've been digging around for weeks, watching videos, reading articles, fudging with config files ... and I'm still at a loss here.

On my Pi 2, I can't get my Logitech F310 Gamepad working for the life of me.

I've installed the xbox drivers, made them boot up at startup, etc. Still nothing.

When I go to the 'Configure input devices for RetroArch' option in RetroPie setup, it immediately exits back to the blue screen and splashes a 'success' type message.

I'm on the latest version of RetroPie and Raspbian.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,
Jay

So after getting a fresh copy of the latest RetroPie release, running rpi-update, and connecting my controller, going to ./retropie_setup.sh, and selecting the option for setting up a RetroArch controller, it immediately returns this message:

The configuration file has been saved as .cfg and will be used by RetroArch from now on whenever that controller is connected.

This is without any xbox drivers installed. The strange thing is that my controller worked briefly when I first got my B+. It then stopped working completely. Now it doesn't work on my brand new Pi2 either.

I'm really at a loss here. It's recognized by my Macbook when I plug it in, so I'm pretty sure the controller is still functional.

I'm having the same problem. I've been using an old Logitech Dual Action, which has been working flawlessly, but I wanted to get a second controller so that I could play 2-player games. The F310 looked like it was just an updated version of the Dual Action.

I've tried plugging it directly into both a B+ and a 2B as well as via a powered USB hub. The results are the same: the controller appears completely dead. The LED doesn't light up when I press the "mode" button and the controller isn't listed when I run the "lsusb" command. The switch on the back is set to DirectInput.

It work just fine when plugged into the keyboard connected to my iMac. An interesting detail is that both controllers are named "Logitech Dual Action" but the F310 has a higher version number and higher power requirements: 100 mA compared to 30 mA.

There's an older thread on the same topic. I don't know if it's still accurate.
The configuration file has been saved as .cfg and will be used by RetroArch from now on whenever that controller is connected.
This seems to indicate that RetroArch couldn't find any controller. Otherwise it'd say name_of_controller.cfg.
