Hello, I just updated my kernel to 4.12.3 and wen i try to use my PS3 controller, the system assignes the position 2 while there are no other PS3 controllers paired, nor any other BT devices.
It might be bug in the hid-sony driver or perhaps bluez missbehaving with newer kernel driver?

If there is a way to make it work properly on newest kernels please let me know.

Cheers

EDIT: On kernels from the 4.11 line all works ok.

Hmm, it might be because of the individual controller?

Hello !

Just had the same issue with kernel 4.12.x, the controller would even control my mouse cursor :mrgreen:, PS3 controller hooked to USB though.

I "solved" the problem by switching from evdev to libinput (libinput is now default in Gentoo since January 2017 but it requires a manual operation on older installs)

Basically :

Code:

vim /etc/portage/make.conf

Quote:

set INPUT_DEVICES="libinput"

Code:
emerge --ask --changed-use --deep @world
emerge --ask --depclean
reboot


Now the controller works properly
