my PS$ controller is not functioning properly or recognised within Steam. I seem to be in the minority on the pages I have looked at.
I successfully paired the controller via Bluetooth and it shows in setting as 'wireless controller'. Within Ubuntu normally, the controller only moves the cursor via the touchpad built into it.
I then startup steam and it does not recognise a controller exists (it tells me in the settings) and when I start to play a game (the only one I currently have is TF2), again only the touchpad on the controller moves the character (its look only) and the 'option' button does bring up the menu in TF2.
Basically, it's acting as a mouse only, not a controller, from what I can see.
I'm running 18.04 Bionic Beaver and from the articles I've read, support and drivers for these controllers are built into the kernel since about version 13, hence why I'm stumped.
Hope someone can help, thanks :)
