Lost my inputs... Any advice? - zedd - 12-30-2019

Good day! First off, should say I am new to most of this, but I think I am learning... Perhaps that is why I am in my current predicament  Big Grin

So, I recently soldered my add-on board, to make use of L2/R2 and the hotkey, (planning to make use of the analogs in time), but when I tried to modify via :

sudo sh -c 'echo "options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=4 gpio=4,17,6,5,19,26,16,24,23,18,15,14,-20,42,43,41,40 hkmode=2" >> /etc/modprobe.d/mk_arcade_joystick.conf'

I lost my inputs when I exited... Soooo. I tried manually putting in the default inputs, as well as my desired inputs, as seen by the image I attached... That didn't work. And I brought up dmesg in hopes of finding an issue, and that's when I really went far out of my depth. 


Any insights into my... blunder, would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

RE: Lost my inputs... Any advice? - Flavor - 12-31-2019

Hey Zedd!

Well, from your post of dmesg (which was the right thing to post), we can see these lines.

[ 2.288038] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: unknown parameter 'gpi' ignored
[ 2.288055] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: unknown parameter 'gpi' ignored
[ 2.288346] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: Freeplay Button Driver
[ 2.288352] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: pad type : 4
[ 2.288357] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: Custom device needs gpio argument

When the driver is reading the conf file, it seems to be hitting some garbage. I also see that the command you used would have added extra lines into the conf file instead of just changing the current line.

sudo sh -c 'echo "options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=4 gpio=4,17,6,5,19,26,16,24,23,18,15,14,-20,42,43,41,40 hkmode=2" >> /etc/modprobe.d/mk_arcade_joystick.conf'

That would add a line, and if there were already lines there, it would now have multiple lines.

Can you post the output of
cat /etc/modprobe.d/mk_arcade_joystick.conf

Then, I think we can get to the bottom of things quicker. What you will likely want to do is actually

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/mk_arcade_joystick.conf

And remove the extra lines and modify the one line you need. You will only want ONE SINGLE line in that file (that doesn't start with #).

Ah thank you for your advice. I checked, and you were absolutely right that I had too many lines of options active:

cat /etc/modprobe.d/mk_arcade_joystick.conf

options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=4 gpi=4,17,6,5,19,26,16,24,23,18,15,14,-20,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1 hkmode=2
options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=4 gpi=4,17,6,5,19,26,16,24,23,18,15,14,-20,42,43,41,40,-1,-1,-1,-1 hkmode=2

I added the # to the one line, and double checked to see I had put it in right, so the next time I checked, it looked right:

#options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=4 gpi=4,17,6,5,19,26,16,24,23,18,15,14,-20,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1 hkmode=2
options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=4 gpi=4,17,6,5,19,26,16,24,23,18,15,14,-20,42,43,41,40,-1,-1,-1,-1 hkmode=2

Rebooted, and it still doesn't seem to recognize the inputs. I tried to configure, and it does not recognize that they are there, and only wants to take inputs from my keyboard.

This is the recent dmesg:

[    2.258149] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel.
[    2.258979] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: unknown parameter 'gpi' ignored

[    2.259434] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: pad type : 4
[    2.259444] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: Custom device needs gpio argument



RE: Lost my inputs... Any advice? - Flavor - 01-03-2020

So, the key here is this output from dmesg:
[ 2.258979] mk_arcade_joystick_rpi: unknown parameter 'gpi' ignored

And your conf line that looks like this:
options mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=4 gpi=4,17,6,5,19,26,16,24,23,18,15,14,-20,42,43,41,40,-1,-1,-1,-1 hkmode=2

It should say gpio instead of gpi.

... I feel silly for not picking up on that. Thank you so much for your help; I look forward to trying it out in the am!


RE: Lost my inputs... Any advice? - zedd - 01-04-2020

Worked perfectly! Thank you so much!!


RE: Lost my inputs... Any advice? - Flavor - 01-07-2020

Awesome!
