I'm trying to use my PS3 controller over USB. I've ran into a host of problems and I'm extremely frustrated at this. I'm using xboxdrv and nothing is happening. The system is recognizing there is a controller attached. I get the following when I'm running it with detach-kernel-driver.
Controller: PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller Vendor/Product: 054c:0268 USB Path: 001:028 Controller Type: Playstation 3 USB Starting without uinput Your Xbox/Xbox360 controller should now be available as: /dev/input/js0 /dev/input/event4 Press Ctrl-c to quit, use '--silent' to suppress the event output
Nothing happens when I'm using the controller. I press the PS button before I run xboxdrv, and the controller skips a blink and continues blinking.
I'm running Elementary OS, which is Ubuntu 12.04. I found that there was a kernel issue with supporting the PS3 controller so I installed the latest Kernel (3.14). I thought this would solve the issue but nothing.
I tried running the controller over Bluetooth, but I'm also having issues with it. This is due to the on-board bluetooth also not being supported by the kernel, and it is conflicting with a Bluetooth USB dongle that I got.
The is a perfect fake of the PS one. I asked another person that bought it and he said it worked perfectly with his PS3. I don't think this is the issue plaguing me. I will try and get an original one to try it out. I also ran Ubuntu 14.04 in virtual machine, and nothing as well.
Up for suggestions and help!
