I get this every time I attempt to access it

CommandLineParser::read_config_file(): couldn't open xboxdrv-mouse.ini

the command I was using was sudo xboxdrv --config xboxdrv-mouse.ini it was for this tutorial on calibrating my logitech f310 to control my mouse cursor. Remapping both mouse and keyboard to a gamepad ( the second comment ).

The most likely solution is it can't find the file because you're not specifying the full path. Find out what the full path is and use that. Eg:

sudo xboxdrv --config /home/oli/xboxdrv-mouse.ini

You can check the path by running stat /home/oli/xboxdrv-mouse.ini. If that tells you it's anything but a file, you're probably using the wrong path.
