I've gone thru a cpl walkthrus on how to get my ps3 controller working on ubuntu. i have a eee pc 1005hab and i get this far:

Type the following command to install the necessary USB library: sudo apt-get install libusb-dev libusb-0.1-4

Connect the PS3 controller, then download the "sixpair" driver to your downloads directory

Type the following command to switch to the download directory:

cd /home/user/downloads

Replace "user" with your user name.

This is as far as i get then it says: bash: cd/ashley/downloads: No such file or directory

Cna anyone help please

(i'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, I would be happy to repost if it is a problem)


There should be a space between cd and /home/ashley/downloads, but the point is, to change the current directory to the one, where the downloaded file is.

  • even when i put the space i get the same problem – user151382 Apr 23 '13 at 1:34
