Digging into Raspberry Pi: Part 2
So, further into my quest to build a control system with the Raspberry Pi, I've been looking around at ways to have simple input from the user for a simple system. The first thing that came to my mind was using an Xbox controller to provide input from the user:

- The Xbox controller plugs into USB and should therefore provide an easy way to integrate a controller for my system.
- The command to download joystick support for the Raspberry Pi was dead simple:
- sudo apt-get install joystick
