I had been happily using my PS3 controller emulated to an xbox 360 controller on my Ubuntu 13.10 and lower Steam library.
I recently updated to 14.04, and now
xboxdrv just does not work anymore.
This is what I do:
- Plug in DS3 into USB port
- Click the Playstation button on it
- It shows all 4 leds lighting at the same time slowly
sudo xboxdrv --detach-kernel-driver
This is the output:
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: /dev/input/js4 /dev/input/event15
And then the Player 1 LED lights up.
BUT after about 3 seconds, the 4 LEDs start lighting slowly again and the controller does not seem to do anything. I use
jstest-gtk to see if input is being registered correctly but nothing happens when I click any of the buttons.
As I said, I had been using this method up until 14.04, and it was working flawlessly. Has anyone been able to get
xboxdrv to work with a Dualshock 3 controller on 14.04?
