The devices labeled "Gasia Gamepad" are tricky and they don't work right now.

I'll publish a complete tutorial for QtSixA very very soon, but for now, try this:
1 - connect your sixaxis via USB (so as the bluetooth adapter, if not internal), and run:
then disconnect the sixaxis (usb cable)
2 - run sixad, and press the PS button on the sixaxis:
There are a lot of issues with Natty's kernel (because 'hcid' simply doesn't work).
I'll need to investigate this more.
If you're not using Ubuntu 11.04/Natty, you can force the sixaxis to *always* work by:
1 - enable sixad at boot:
2 - remove bluez completely:
sudo sixad --boot-yes
You won't be able to do any bluetooth stuff this way, but it makes the sixaxis *always* work.
sudo apt-get remove bluez bluetooth
(Again, it will NOT work on Natty)
Complete documentation coming soon!
