Hi,

I'm trying to get up and running the DS4 controller in Steam. Following the wiki,

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Sony_DualShock#DualShock_4

I'm able to pair the device, and everything seems nice, meaning
- can see the battery level
- it's shown in Plasma
- running
Code:
cat /dev/input/js0

and pushing buttons afterwards prints garbage on the screen.

However, inside Steam, the controller is not recognized. Any clue? I installed Steam through the "steam-overlay", and the controller works like a charm via USB.

Cheers.

Hi there,

sorry for the delay.

I take it you mean

Settings -> Controller -> General Controller Settings -> Playstation Configuration Support

right?

I had already done that, and I see (in the same screen) the message

Code:
No controllers detected


However, I tried some games and it's working 8O (for the record, I think I had tried this before)

...anyway, thanks!!

I'm appending "solved" on top.

Cheers.

Nah...that's not it: already in the plugdev.

Anyway, I consider this a happy ending :D
