Xbox 360 controller drivers

Postby codedninja on Thu Dec 31, 2009 8:38 pm

Well I installed linux mint about a month ago and fell in love with it. It only has one downside to it I tried compiling http://pingus.seul.org/~grumbel/xboxdrv/ and I get a error.
Code: Select all
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
Checking for C++ library X11... (cached) yes
Checking for C++ library usb... (cached) yes
Checking for C++ header file boost/thread/thread.hpp... (cached) yes
Checking for C++ library boost_thread-mt... (cached) yes
scons: done reading SConscript files.
scons: Building targets ...
g++ -o src/usb_read_thread.o -c -g -O2 -Wall -ansi -pedantic src/usb_read_thread.cpp
src/usb_read_thread.cpp: In member function 'int USBReadThread::read(uint8_t*, int, int)':
src/usb_read_thread.cpp:70: error: 'memcpy' was not declared in this scope
scons: *** [src/usb_read_thread.o] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

Thats not working so then I tried looking for a different driver ran across a tutorial on ubuntu.com since Linux Mint is based on ubuntu I tried it nothing went wrong until i ran make and I get this error.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Welcome to Mint
Before I dive into this - did you install build-essential?
Code: Select all
apt install build-essential

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
