I am trying currently to get a Sony Playstation Sixaxis Dualshock Controller attached to my F17 multimedia system. However, add the moment, I am failing terribily as the device doesn't seems to be connected to the system and I cannot get it working either the bluetooth nor the usb way. I am really hoping that someone else might have a similiar setup and performed some tests, I am really open for any idea.
The connection itself seems to be absolutely fine. When the device is attached to USB, in dmesg I can see the device is recognized by the system:
[ 2067.283259] input: Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.2/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.0/input/input17
[ 2067.284665] sony 0003:054C:0268.000A: input,hiddev0,hidraw2: USB HID v1.11 Joystick [Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-2/input0
However, it seems like no device is created and its not useable as a gamepad either. I am not sure, what actually is missing here.
When doing the bluetooth style, I compiled the latest version of "sixpair" and was able to attach it to a bluetooth device of the system. When pressing the PS button, the controller starts to blink and some seconds laster, kbluetooth is notificating that a new device was found. Its recognized as playstation controller. However, after a few seconds, the connection breaks and its trying to reattach the device again showing a notification. This actually seems to be running in a loop.
I am not sure, why both ways seems to fail using it as a gamepad. Any ideas?
