    Any help or pointers greatly appreciated.

    Getting it to work is not worth it. With the hacks enabled it does work for some time, but you may have a kernel panic/crash randomly, and the device may also randomly disconnect itself.
    That is just a bad device, stay away from it...

    Re: HOW-TO: Connect Sixaxis to Ubuntu trough bluetooth mode

    I have bought a generic ps3 gamepad expecting that it will work on usb, I don't know anything related to gasia. Now I find that it's gasia one. It cannot work even on usb? jtest-gtk detetect it, but it doesn't work. Anybody knows how to get it working at least connected by usb cable?

    This Gasia device will not even work on USB, sorry if I forgot to mention that.

    You should replace it/trade it ASAP.

    Re: HOW-TO: Connect Sixaxis to Ubuntu trough bluetooth mode

    Hi,

    I have a German keyboard on my laptop (Xubuntu 11.10), so my default layout is the German one (de). Whenever I connect the Dualshock 3 with the USB the layout gets changed to English (us). This also happens when I use Bluetooth.

    I also configured the controller to act as input (keyboard/mouse), could this be the problem?

    (QtSixA version: 1.5.1 from the ppa, with 64bit 3.0.0 kernel)

    I use a portuguese keyboard layout here, and never had any issues. (I've been using it like this since I first started with Linux),
    I say you have something not properly configured.

    If you say 'This also happens when I use Bluetooth.', then it's not a problem with the sixaxis driver.

    Re: HOW-TO: Connect Sixaxis to Ubuntu trough bluetooth mode

    I've installed Qtsixa via the PPA on 11.10 64bit and am not able to get a Sixaxis PS3 controller to connect via bluetooth. I get zero response from the GUI and when I start it via the terminal, it connects, I get a rumble from the controller and then a line that says:

    Bad Sixaxis buffer (out of battery?), disconneting now...

    (Misspelling is from the CLI.)

    I've searched the web and this thread and can't come up with anything. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Can you share the id of this device (the info on the back), please?

    Does it work for usb? If yes, connect it, and run:
    Code:
    sudo hidraw-dump /dev/hidrawX
    # X is the hidraw interface number reported by 'dmesg'
    That should give me enough info to make it work.

    Thanks for the quick response! I'm at work, but I'll do this and post the info as soon as I get home.

    OK, I'm not sure which ID you're referring to, but on the back there's an FCC ID:

    AK8CECHZC2UA1

    There's also an ID showing in the Qtsixa GUI:

    054c:0268

    I can plug it in and it is recognized, but when I play a game, the controls aren't right. For instance, in GTA3 my character runs in circles without me touching any controls. When I try SuperTux Cart the controller is listed as available, but pressing any buttons does nothing.

    I did the hidraw-dump and the terminal window showed blocks of 2 digit hex? characters that would change as I manipulated the controls. Not sure if you wanted to see anything else?

    Thanks for looking into this!

    That info is exactly what I need right now. run hidraw-dump again, give it some time (~5secs), kill it, then post here the last blocks of data.
    thanks
