Kodi supports the X-Arcade Tankstick on Linux. Enable the X-Arcade Tankstick add-on in the Add-on Manager under the Peripheral Libraries folder. A udev rule may be required (see below).

Fixing permissions

To prevent keystroke logging security attacks, udev input devices can only be opened by root. To give non-root users read access, place 80-xarcade.rules in the folder /etc/udev/rules.d/.

This file can be downloaded with the command:

wget https://raw.github.com/kodi-game/peripheral.xarcade/master/rules/80-xarcade.rules

Before installing an internet file, check its contents:

cat 80-xarcade.rules

Finally, copy the file to its destination:

sudo cp 80-xarcade.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
