[OPEN] PS3 gamepad mapping

Post by SeanyMcP » Thu Aug 15, 2019 9:54 am

Hello everyone

I am having issues using my PS3 controller I paired via bluetooth. All buttons are mapped correctly except the up and down positions on the right analog stick. I had first discovered this using the button configuration plugin in PCSX2, then installed xf86-input-joystick and it reproduced the same problem.
I went on to install js-test where I was able to correct the problem in the mapping window by changing the mapping order. At this point the controller acts properly in js-test, but fails to work throughout the rest of the system.
I have installed joyutils and tried to use the jscal-store command in order to lock the new mapping configuration but I cannot get through successfully :

Code: Select all

sudo jscal-store /dev/input/js0
(with the name of the device given by js-test)
returns

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/jscal-store: ligne 21: /usr/local/share/joystick/ident: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
No product name or vendor available, calibration will be stored for the
given device name () only!
/usr/bin/jscal-store: ligne 40: /usr/local/share/joystick/filter: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
Now I'm blocked

A few months back I had used this gamepad without any issues, so it seems there's a new bug in the default mapping.

Any help will be appreciated

I am afraid I can not help.

Anyone else?

I'll reach out to the arch linux forum and post something here if I find a solution.
