I'm having the same problem. The LEDs on the sixaxis flash in succession and it rumbles but then i get the same error as andriod2388. The batteries are fully charged and the sixaxis works fine on the ps3.
I have been using qtsixa for a while now with much success but there are a couple things bugging me that I can't seem to figure out-
1.) When using the mouse emulation on the right analog stick the mouse is always slow and choppy and changing the axis multiplier speed has no effect whatsoever.(haven't tested on left stick yet but wouldn't use that anyway) This used to work perfectly for me but at some point something happened and now its unusable because its just too slow
2.) When using qtsixa with wine the right joystick isn't recognized properly. i.e. with San Andreas I use the "Joystick" option in qtsixa, no mouse+keys checked, and everything works perfect except I can't look up or down on the right joystick. This happens in other games as well. I don't know if this a bug in wine or if there is something else that could be tweaked in qtsixa to fix this. I was using the right joystick as mouse at one time to work around the problem but that isn't working right due to the problem I mentioned above.
Any help on these would be much appreciated!
btw I am using qtsixa 1.5.1 from the kxstudio ppa on Ubuntu 12.04
I was just wondering if the project was dead or not. Because I noticed decline in numbers of Dualshock 3 in the stores, with some of them just saying that it has been discontinued.
Hello, i have problem with BT connection ubuntu-DS3.
What's the problem? Let me show You.
I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Linux Kernel 3.2.0-31-generic. Version of QtSixA is 1.5.1.
That is my lsusb and lspci:
QtSixA found DualShock3 (via USB)
And PCSX found DS3 (via USB) as "Gasia Co., Ltd PS(R) Gamepad" ?
(but I can't set buttons configuration, buttons from DS3 are not working via USB in PCSX)
Led status when connect via USB (blinking all leds [slow])
And now I'm unplug DS3 from USB and try to connect via BlueTooth.
I'm pressing PSButton (all leds blinking [faster]) but a few seconds later DS3 is turning off. I'm pressing PSButton 3 times, no response from SixAD. Forse quit and stopping SixAD.
QtSixA found DS3 via BlueTooth when I'm pressed PSButton but only for time when leds are blinking. When DS3 stopped trying to connect DS3 from QtSixA gone.
Ubuntu found new Bluetooth device and asking for access permission. (when DS3 try to connect with QtSixA)
I'm pressing PSButton again and Ubuntu found DS3 (leds blinking).
So I can't connect with my DualShock3 via USB and via BlueTooth. None emulator or QJoyPad can't find and configure device or keys via USB and BlueTooth. DS3 can't synchronize with Ubuntu via BlueTooth. Someone have good solve for my problem?
well, you just need this:
1 - sixpair
2 - run sixad, like this:
While you press the PS button to connect, run this on a different terminal:Code:
run it several times until the sixaxis connect.Code:
sudo killalll -KILL bluetoothd
(That command prevents normal bluetooth from catching events needed in sixad).
Hi falkTX :)
Just a note to say please do update qtsixa!! I love my sixaxis pad but have not been able to use it since switching to kubuntu from windows7. I love kubuntu and dont want to switch back just to be able to use my gamepad, especially since the games I use run so well in linux (via wine of course)
If the few bugs in your driver were ironed out so it worked properly in kubuntu it would be an amazing utility! If you are willing to fix it then im willing to make a donation ;)
The trouble im having is as follows: To begin with it worked ok (connecting by command line only, but worked) but recently it wont connect at all. Ive tried a different bluetooth manager, different bluetoth dongle and even a different controller (cost me £35 for nothing DX) I tried purging all bluetooth and sixaxis software and reinstalling too, but still no joy. I know (from youtube vids) that in ubuntu (and I assume kubuntu) 10.10 this driver worked flawlessly, even connecting/auto-connecting via gui. I'm guessing updates to the linux kernel or bluetooth stack must have broken it? Either way an updated and fixed version of qtsixa/sixad would be a lifesaver for me :)
Please please please please please fix it!!
I tryed vanilla qtsixa 1.5.1-6 and patched for sdp version, but no luck.
