    When I use my Wii U Pro Controller with my raspberry pi, every time I go into PPSSPP, it acts like a mouse. Does anyone know how to stop this from happening? Also I am using retropi.

    (Didn't know where to post this and considering I'm making a handheld, I decided to put it in this section. If I posted it in the wrong section then can someone please move it? Thanks)

    I would guess this would go into computers, but do you have a tool to remap it? Not a person knowledgeable on Raspberry Pi Linux distro but there should be a tool for game controllers. Or another emulator even?

    Maybe you have xorg-input-joystick (or whatever it's called) installed? That's exactly its purpose :)

    There is a built-in tool to map buttons, but it dosen't have any option for mouse. There is another emulator but it's compatibility isn't that good.

    How can I check if it's installed?

    Your favorite package manager (dpkg, apt, aptitude, synaptic, some others)
    for example: dpkg -l | grep joystick

    google says you enter "dpkg -s xorg-input-joystick" into a command line.

    We specialize in proprietary gaming OSs. If you want deep linux help you might be better off following the source of the code. My experience of the retroPi forums is that they are useless though.

    It says "Unable to locate package xorg-input-joystick"

    May or may not be the exact name (as they often vary between distros, I actually don't even know what you're using) so some research and adaptation may be needed

    So to summarize:

    I'm beginning to think we could use a dedicated Linux section. There's enough overlap that it could add to the forum, and being able to post there would get more eyeballs from the people who actually now this shit.
