Hi

Does anybody know how to get the playstation 3 sixaxis remote working with X. I have tried the following however it just jumps around the screen. I assume that the driver should be different than "mouse" but I am not sure what it should be. I would like to use this with MythTV rather than plugging in a keyboard.

Code:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/js0"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection

Apparently there is a seperate xorg joystick driver available. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=115997

Let me know if it works, I want to use this as well :)

To get a joystick working with xorg you need to compile it with INPUT_DEVICE="joystick" check the useflags for xorg-base and edit your make.conf accordingly.

Let me know if you get it to work. This would be another good reason as to why I should try to get my hands on a ps3.
