    Anyone having problem connecting Sixaxis trough USB?

    In another thread here about users having connection difficulties with the Sony Sixaxis over bluetooth. I'm having some difficulty with it over USB (made a thread in the Gaming section).

    It's a Sony Navigation Controller and I've tested it (over USB) on a Xubuntu (12.04) machine and an android machine, but still having issues with my 11.04 laptop (it has 1 USB 2.0 port and no bluetooth).

    Using dmesg |grep Sony, the controller comes up as:
    Code:
    input: Sony Navigation Controller as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-2/2-2:1.0/input/input5
    generic-usb 0003:054C:042F.0001: input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Joystick [Sony Navigation Controller] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-2/input0
    input: Sony Navigation Controller as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-2/2-2:1.0/input/input9
    generic-usb 0003:054C:042F.0002: input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Joystick [Sony Navigation Controller] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-2/input0
    input: Sony Navigation Controller as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-2/2-2:1.0/input/input10
    generic-usb 0003:054C:042F.0003: input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Joystick [Sony Navigation Controller] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-2/input0
    Running sixpair, I get an error message that "No controller found on USB busses." Nothing responds in jstest-gtk, though it also sees a Sony Navigation Controller connected. Running jstest-gtk before the controller is plugged in and hitting "Refresh" afterwards does nothing; I have to restart the program. Hitting "Mapping" also causes jstest-gtk to crash when the controller is plugged in.
    Is this just a limitation of Ubuntu 11.04? (Because users with 9.x and 10.x seem to have it working.) Is it a conflict of something I downloaded?
