QtSixA is the Sixaxis Joystick Manager. It can connect PS3 hardware
(Sixaxis/DualShock3 and Keypads) to a Linux-compatible machine.
Currently it supports Sixaxis buttons, axis, accelerometers and LEDs.
Some patches thankfully taken from https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qtsixa/.
Be sure you are using a Bluetooth dongle with a HCI version higher than 1.1
by using `hciconfig default version | grep HCI`.
Please note that due to the behaviour of "sixpair" and a replaced "hidd",
the stock Bluetooth stack is getting disabled while running and no other
Bluetooth devices will work, until the "replaced" hidd is disabled again
from `sh /etc/rc.d/rc.sixad stop`.
In case something like `kdesu` is not installed, you need to run `qtsixa`
with root rights.
- connect your device through USB
- start "qtsixa" and pair your device (Tasks->Pair Device to PC)
- start "sixad" by `sh /etc/rc.d/rc.sixad start`
- press the PS button on your controller
Pairing is just needed once. If wanted, you can add rc.sixad to your
rc.local and pressing the PS button again after a reboot without any
This requires: jack-audio-connection-kit
