    oh yes I can't seem to install other programs aswell.
    what can I do to fix this?

    First you should try a disk check, not sure how to do it in the PS3, though.

    Are you in the group admin and sudo?
    Code:
    groups

    uh yeah when I enter "groups" in the Terminal, after my username it has "adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare".

    is there some sort of System Restore feature maybe?

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

    Then I don't know what your errors are all about...
    I would recommend to reformat the system...
    A new Ubuntu version is just coming out (10.04, Lucid Lynx), so...

    i reinstalled/reformatted, got the installer to work but had some trouble getting it function, then I had my internet connection keep cutting off, even after rebooting.

    I'm just gonna update my PS3. :/ (remove Other OS feature so I can go on psn.)

    thanks for the help anyway guys.

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

    Hello!

    I've recently upgraded to Lucid (by way of clean installation) and I can't use my DualShock 3 anymore. It's apparently detected when I plug it into my computer (it's listed in qtsixa), but the device file /dev/input/js0 is never created. If it helps, here's the dmesg output:

    Code:
    [ 2998.024026] usb 7-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7
    [ 2998.247145] usb 7-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

    [ 3018.284357] sony: probe of 0003:054C:0268.0009 failed with error -110
    When I try to pair it from the menu, it freezes for a few seconds and reports:

    Code:
    USB_REQ_GET_CONFIGURATION: Connection timed out
    USB_REQ_SET_CONFIGURATION: Connection timed out
    Current Bluetooth master: Setting master bd_addr to 00:1b:dc:00:44:3c
    ...and when I pull the plug and turn the controller on again, it starts acting as a new mouse (even though that option isn't selected).

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Things are a little weird on Lucid... You should, first of all, select "None" as profile and apply it. Lucid ships a Xorg conf that enables joystick mouse without user intervention. This way *any* joystick won't work as mouse or keyboard.

    Which kernel are use using?

    The hidraw device seems to be created when you connect over USB. You can use "sudo sixad-raw /dev/hidrawX" to get it to work. It's not the perfect solution, but it should work.


    I'll look into these Lucid issues soon, just be a little patient.

    Well, I checked with and without the controller connected and it doesn't look like it's actually creating one... I tried sixad-raw anyway with the last hidraw device and it told me it wasn't a controller.
