Hello ubuntu forums.
Recently I installed a new copy of precise 86x due a to long story and I have slowly been reinstalling applications.
However I have had a problem with Xboxdrv and my PS3 controller.
As usual I connect it start it with sudo xboxdrv --detach-kernel-driver and press the playstation button to activate it.
It loads and detects the controller get the usual:

Controller: PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller
Vendor/Product: 054c:0268
USB Path: 003:004
Controller Type: Playstation 3 USB

Your Xbox/Xbox360 controller should now be available as:

But it will not detect any input from it.
Press any of the buttons on it and I get nothing. No input from the buttons and non from the axis's
What obvious mistake have I made this time?
