Hmmm...weird...First make sure your Intrepid install is completely up-to-date. Then try to reinstall the packages needed to use the wiimote:
Then restart the computer and go to a terminal again and type:Code:sudo aptitude remove libcwiid1 lswm python-cwiid wmgui wminput
Now follow this section of Rhubarb's original tutorial as it'll work for Intrepid too.Code:sudo aptitude install libcwiid1 lswm python-cwiid wmgui wminput
Once you're done restart the computer again.Allow your Wii remote to be a keyboard / mouse / joystick:-
Unless you want to run sudo modprobe uinput every time you start Ubuntu, it's recommend you make it automatically run upon Ubuntu start up.
gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local
Insert this line before exit 0:
So the whole file should look exactly like this:
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# By default this script does nothing.
You may restart your computer for the settings to take effect,
Once it boots up again run:
And check if it works.Code:gksudo wminput <your wiimote's bluetooth address here>
If somehow that doesn't work try reconnecting your bluetooth adapter to another USB port...if it is a USB dongle...
Let me know if it works for ya.
