xbox360 wireless HELP

Thu Mar 07, 2019 8:17 am

I am trying to get an xbox 360 (clone) to work with my pi3b+. I follwoed the instructions for installing and running the driver (xboxdrv) and initially it seemed to work but..
1) The suggestion to blacklist xpad on boot caused

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
				blacklist xpad
makes the xbox unreconizable. Using the

Code: Select all

sudo rmmod xpad
works OK
2) Starting the xbox driver at boot with

Code: Select all

	sudo nano /etc/rc.local (TO RUN xboxdrv WITHOUT sudo)
				xboxdrv --wid 0 --led 2 --detach-kernel-driver --deadzone 4000 --silent & sleep 1
does not work. Instead running

Code: Select all

sudo xboxdrv
works OK providing that sudo rmmod xpad has been used beforehand
3) In my script I use flask-io. This will not work with the xbox driver

The questions are
1) How can i use xboxdrv without sudo?
2) Why flask does not work when xbox is used?

Many thanks for taking the time to help
