Enabling the native controller support
Hey guys,

is it somehow possible to enable the official Frodo gamepad support in xbian?
I can't find this configuration point in the latest release:

Nice! What do you think, how long it's going to take for a release with this function enabled?

Enabling the native controller support
My pi is already compiling xbmc with SDL and joystick support, if nothing goes wrong, it will be in the xbmc-nightly/Frodo git within a few hours - 8 hours. Just keep an eye on that github issue Wink Instructions on how to install it will also be posted there.

RE: Enabling the native controller support
Already installing it. Thanks guys for the great support!

Got an error after installing the nightly, when i want to start XBMC.

"/usr/local/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

i tried it 2 times. After the restore from the backup everything is fine.

RE: Enabling the native controller support
Can you start XBMC with
Code:
sudo /usr/local/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin

The issue is that the xbian user doesn't have permission to /dev/fb0, root does. @CurlyMo can you help us out on this one?

Some progress
Code:
sudo usermod -a -G video xbian

But still an error in the xbmc.log
Code:
14:54:10 T:3032182784  NOTICE: Setup SDL
14:54:10 T:3032182784   FATAL: XBAppEx: Unable to initialize SDL: Unable to open a console terminal

RE: Enabling the native controller support
I don't think these kind of framebuffer routes is a good idea. That's why XBMC has a custom implementation for the RPi in which they don't directly use the framebuffer.

RE: Enabling the native controller support
That means SDL is a no go for us?

RE: Enabling the native controller support
I think there are some things crossing each other:
1) Our wayland + XBMC experimentation for which we need an SDL
2) Our current (default RPi) XBMC implementation which uses the video driver directly

If you are trying to achieve the first one, then you will probably run into a lot of difficulties. I still would like to test the first build here. If you are trying to add an SDL to the second option then you're indeed doing some wierd things because the whole point of a fluent XBMC for the RPi at this moment is it is built so it can run without the X display driver and SDL.
