Loading GPIO Joystick drivers on startup
I'm using GPIO Joysticks – when I load the driver after connecting via SSH to my Recalbox, I can load the driver:
After that, the joysticks work perfectly.
However, after rebooting, the driver is gone – unsurprisingly, as it isn't loaded on startup. I'd like to change that.
Unfortunately, this tutorial
doesn't do the trick for me. It does, for instance, assume
to exist on the system (which isn't the case for Recalbox), and also I do have the feeling that I'm stuck in 'read only' mode after ssh'ing to the system.
Any ideas are welcome! Thank you.
I did manage to mount the SD card of my RPi 3 in writeable mode add
options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=1,2
. – but still the drivers do not load on startup. When I run
manually after start-up, it works –but it doesn't do that automatically. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
@fh1105 Read this, it may be out of date, but it should help with something:
Yes, these are exactly the steps I took ("Automatic loading at startup").
How can I run a script upon booting Recalbox?
@fh1105 Did you enable GPIO controllers in the recalbox.conf file?

To start a script automatically with Recalbox, this is the tutorial, but I don't know if that's what you need:
That solved it for me – I set it to GPIO enabled = 1 in the .conf file. Thank you very much, keep it up!
