GUI for SixA
After the BlueZ stack was updated to 4.xx, Sixaxis joysticks (from Sony PS3 console) stop working. There's some people on the bluez team working to make it work, but it seems that it could take a while.
So I decided to create a simple GUI that would use some patched 'hidd' that allows to connect Sixaxis to a Linux PC "out-of-the-box".
The application is called 'SixA' (It will be in 'Apps' -> 'Utils' -> 'SixA'). The GUI is almost complete and has been tested to work in 32, 64-bit and PowerPC/PS3 computers. On LPIA architecture may also work, but this has never been tested.
To install, simply add my repository to the Software Sources: (It's normal if it gives a warning when updating sources; the repo isn't trusted yet)
deb http://falktx.xtreemhost.com/repo/ubuntu jaunty main
Then can you install it by opening a terminal and type:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install qt-sixa
In a hurry? Add it to your Download Basket!
