kodi: enable peripheral.joystick
Closed, ResolvedPublic


  • peripheral.joystick
  • It is standard kodi module which allows control of a htpc with a gamepad. Since hdmi-cec support in drivers and hardware on x86 is pretty-much nonexistent, next best option apart of tv remote is a gamepad, hence module request.
  • It is open-source, it's integral part of kodi project.

Just finished getting this to work. I can't test right this instant because kodi won't recognize my old Logitech Rumblepad 2.

@ikey: I'll get in touch about pushing this to unstable and fix the attending deprecation of the separately packaged kodi-addon-inputstream-adaptive (since I figured out how to include it natively in the kodi build).

Once D2411 / R1571:faf22ef532314a1a1b52f861802fd05c7707cc22 lands in the next stable sync, could you please test that the peripheral.joystick works as expected? I don't have a compatible gamepad with which to test...
