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

    This is probably a silly question but how do I get my DS3 to do the mouse movements? I've installed Bluez, and QtSixA, configured the controller for all the PS3 actions like accelerometers etc, but I won't move the cursor?

    Secondly, how do I get the DS3 to work via Bluetooth? My laptop came with a bluetooth adapter via PCI as standard, I'm just unsure of how to set that up. Instructions weren't very clear, not enough info.

    I'm on Natty with the 2.6.39 kernel.

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

    Hey I'm having some difficulties...
    running 11.04

    I got everything to work, it's connected (solid light, rumbled when connected) and I have configured the profiles... but I can't seem to get any input from the controller whether it be from the mouse or the keyboard... I enabled input (mouse and keyboard) and selected a profile and even disabled joystick which it recommended (doesn't work with it on either)

    jstest does show input for all the buttons and stuff I press though...

    Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated!



    figured it out =]
    needed to map the buttons via the controller in the emulator

    Installing 'joystick' is *not* required.

    Basically, here are the steps required to use Sixaxis, in bluetooth mode:

    1 - Pair the Sixaxis to your bluetooth dongle
    This is made by connecting the sixaxis over USB, with the bluetooth dongle on USB too (unless it's internal, of course).
    You can check if the sixaxis is properly connected with 'lsusb', and the bluetooth dongle with 'hcitool dev'.
    If all is ok, run:
    Code:
    sudo sixpair
    And the sixaxis will be paired, first step completed. You can now remove the sixaxis from USB.

    2 - Connect over bluetooth
    Usually, if the sixaxis is paired, pressing the PS button should auto-connect the sixaxis (it has a udev rule).
    If that doesnt happen, wait until it stops blinking (you can force it by using 'hcitool dc <mac>' [get <mac> using 'hcitool con']).
    Then run:
    Code:
    sixad --stop
    sixad --start
    And press the PS button again. It *must* connect now. If not, consider it a bug and please report back to me.

    One thing worth trying is edit '/etc/default/sixad' and change debug mode to 1 (DEBUG=1), so you can get more messages out of the sixad.

    You can do all this without even starting the GUI. (QtSixA).
    Use the GUI if you need to change profiles, or maybe to disconnect stuff.


    btw, you may ask 'how do I know when the sixaxis is connected?'.
    If you ran 'sixad --start' from the terminal, a message will printed everytime a device connects (sixaxis or keypad).
    Unless you changed the default profile, the sixaxis should animate the leds (and rumble if supported).


    I hope this clears up something
    i too had the same problem, tried everything mentioned , ubuntu 10.4, i tried everything i could.!!please help me. thank you

    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.

    I was able to compile sixad for the omap3 architecture for the Beagleboard!

    I am having this same problem as described above. If it helps, here is the result of my hidraw-dump:

    01 9F
    Also, here is my FCC ID (not sure if this is what you were asking for): AK8CECHZC2

    Looking at http://wiki.ps2dev.org/ps3:hardware:sixaxis, the first two bytes should be "A1 01" and the 32nd byte should indicate battery power. Possible values are 05, 02, and 01, or EE for charging.

    It looks like my 31st byte corresponds to the battery status (EE), however, the following byte (12), which should represent the operating status, is NOT one of the possibilities listed on ps2dev (10, 14, or 16).

    It appears that the whole message is shifted left by one byte, and the last byte (9F) is junk?

    Thanks for the help.

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

    All,

    The problem was my BT dongle. If you run:
    Code:
    sudo hcidump -v
    Your BT dongle's BT version prints out. Mine was less than 2.0, and according to pabr's website:
    A 2.0 Bluetooth adapter is recommended. Otherwise, incoming input reports may be truncated to 12 bytes.
    After entering some debug print statements in sixad-sixaxis.cpp, it was determined that only 13 bytes were being captured. After obtaining a BT 2.0 dongle, all was well.

    Thanks all

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

    Hello,

    I would like to use my DS3 to play Minecraft, but at the moment I can't get any input with it.

    I have connected the controller through Bluetooth and it has the one LED lit, but when I use Qjoypad to map the keyboard commands the the controller I cant get any input from the controller.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
