    To start, i would like to say thank you for your job for the guides.

    I need help with my XBox360 controller: i try to install with the tutorial, but when i have to edit rc.local, i don’t have the permission to modify it… (try with Winscp)

    So what is the way to simply edit this file and add instances of xboxdrv during?

    Thank you

    (ps. i am french and a noob in linux world ;)


    I too am a linux n00b, but i believe all you need to do is the following form terminal or putty…

    cd /etc
    sudo nano rc.local

    It is going to change directories to “etc”
    Then the second command will open the rc.local file in nano (an editor). Using the “sudo” command will give you the proper rights to edit the file.

    When you made your changes, press “ctrl+x” to exit. Then “y” to save changes. Lastly, just hit “enter” to save it as the same name (rc.local).

    Anyone feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
