Using Waveshare Game Hat as Input Device

I am new to Patchbox and wanted to use the Waveshare Game Hat controller to set up a M8 Tracker (GitHub - RowdyVoyeur/m8c-rpi4: M8 Tracker Headless Client for Raspberry Pi 4 Model B). Installation seems to be successfull, but I don’t get the joystick to be recognized.

I tried to install the mk_arcade_joystick_rpi but throws the error:

Error! echo
Your kernel headers for kernel 6.1.19-v8+ cannot be found at
/lib/modules/6.1.19-v8+/build or /lib/modules/6.1.19-v8+/source.

Did anybody got the Game Hat to work as input device in Patchbox?

From where can I get the headers?

wget`uname -r`_`uname -r`-2_armhf.deb sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-`uname -r`_`uname -r`-2_armhf.deb sudo rm linux-headers-`uname -r`_`uname -r`-2_armhf.deb

Try following the instructions here: GitHub - RowdyVoyeur/m8c-rpi4-module: A m8c-rpi4 module for Patchbox OS

I’m sorry you are having troubles. Unfortunately, those instructions assume you are using a USB controller of some sort. So, that could be the issue :frowning:
