No controller detected. Plug a controller with a USB cable.

Post by cheerilee » Wed Jun 04, 2014 11:23 pm

Hi, guys!

first of all - thank you very much for building such a great software!

i am using gimx from git (just downloaded it, i don't know how to get the version - in help->about it says "gmix-launcher 0.00").
i used git cause i run gentoo and it's easier for me to build soft from source, than unpacking a .deb package.
it got built like a charm, no problems.

i have a fat ps3 with dualshock 3 controller. i have plugged controller using usb before running gmix-launcher and i am pretty sure it is seen from linux. at least it is shown by lsusb:

Code: Select all

rakul@lucky-star ~/GIMX/launcher $ sudo lsusb
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 1532:0034 Razer USA, Ltd 
Bus 005 Device 005: ID 1532:0109 Razer USA, Ltd Lycosa Keyboard
Bus 005 Device 007: ID 054c:0268 Sony Corp. Batoh Device / PlayStation 3 Controller
Bus 005 Device 006: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)

Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 009 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
my user is in usb group. i have also tried running gmix-launcher under root, using kdesu.

unfortunatelly i keep getting this error "No controller detected".
i am sorry for not posting in the developer section, i'm just not sure if my problem is something really simple like i have missed something and has nothing to do with git source.
thank you!

Hi,

gimx-launcher is still under development, so it may have a few bugs.

But I realized that the postinst does something that wasn't in the wiki:

http://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Dev ... the_setuid

gimx-launcher uses the sixaddr binary to get the bdaddrs from the DS3.

Hi!

thanks for the reply!

i followed the wiki and it worked. unfortunatelly it doesn't detect my bluetooth adapter but i should check my kernel first, cause i probably didn't include bluetooth related stuff there.
also on the wiki there is
> sudo chmod u+s /usr/bin/gimx
i do not have /usr/bin/gimx , but i have all the other binaries: /usr/bin/sixaddr /usr/bin/bdaddr /usr/bin/hcirevision /usr/bin/gimx-config /usr/bin/gimx-fpsconfig /usr/bin/gimx-bluetooth /usr/bin/gimx-serial
is it okay?

Hi,

You probably have a compilation error due to a missing development library.
The required development libraries are listed on the wiki.
