In kernel 3.1 the drive for the wiimote was added. Since 3.2 I ask, can I connect the wiimote and simply have access to it or do I need to install a program for it or something additional for it.
Have you tried WiiCan
Download .deb http://www.getdeb.net/software/wiican I know it was released for Natty
Here is the launchpad info https://launchpad.net/wiican
Evidentially it does a good job
