Recently, I bought a PS3 Controller(Dual shock 3) and configured it to my pc via a bluetooth dongle using instructions at:
http://www.ps3hax.com/forum/tutorials/15604-enable-bluetooth-ydl-6-0-a.html
and
http://www.pabr.org/sixlinux/sixlinux.en.html

I can view the values returned by the ps3 using the hcidump command, but am having problems in reading and processing the values through a c program to control a hexapod.
Please help....

ps3 in ubuntu

The bluetooth daemon was recognising the ps3 in my earlier ubuntu version 8.04. I could see the values in the hcidump and jstest, but when i tried using the hidraw interface, it gave an error and asked to upgrade the kernel.

Now that i have upgraded to ubuntu 8.10, even the hidd has stopped recognising the ps3 i.e. on the step:

sudo hidd --server --nocheck -n

hidd[17087]: Bluetooth HID daemon

then it keeps on waiting.
So, please help on how to get it going in ubuntu 8.10.

(as earlier:)

I was looking for the state of PS3 Dual Shock support for Linux and came across a comprehensive solution: http://www.ros.org/wiki/ps3joy
