How to get Ubuntu/Wine to detect PS3 controller through USB?
I need some help in order to configure my PS3 controller in Ubuntu 12.04 and use it for playing games I've installed in Wine 1.4.
I don't have bluetooth on my computer so I am trying to get it to work through USB connection only. What I have been doing is the following:
sudo apt-get install libusb-dev libusb-0.1-4
and then downloading, compiling and trying to run sixpair with:
sixpair then complains about missing bluetooth or something similar and then I am stuck. In all of the tutorials I've found they are talking about blutooth pairing which is not what I am trying to do. I believe that sixpair is used for blutooth pairing only but I might be wrong.
I've also stumbled across a tool named QtSixA which I understand is used for pairing of the PS3 and the computer. It detects my PS3 controller and displays it in it's GUI, but I lack knowledge of what to do next.
This is as far as I have come, I would really appreciate any pointers as to what to do next.
Whan I connect the controller through USB, the lights start continuously flashing but I am unable to do anything with the controller and there is no response to pressing any buttons while running games in wine.
Thanks in advance.
@MODS: I was unsure whether to post in this or in Gaming/Wine forum, please feel free to move the thread if necessary.
