Hello everyone

I followed all the discussions here and there but nothing respond in my case.
the PS3 controller is well detected by the kernel

Did you press the PlayStation button after you plugged the Sixaxis into the USB port? You should also check if the required kernel options are enabled. The xboxdrv ebuild should have done this for you.

Is there a reason why you're using xboxdrv? I can only guess that you want to create a custom button mapping for the Sixaxis. If you just want a working Sixaxis controller via USB or Bluetooth, follow the instructions on the Gentoo Wiki.

Hie

if i understand well i need to remap the keys from the keyboard to the ps3 controller through an app like Qtsixa ?

i search on the net and in every sites they said that when you plug your ps3 controller though usb all work fine, but what does it mean ? is the ps3 controller take control of the arrow cursor, is it only for linux based game, does it work for wine apps ?

Can someone help me ?

thanks
