I've moved your thread to support section.

Did you plug dualshock 4 controller to RPi usb port?

Eventually I realized the controller wasn't detected due to a usb webcam. DS4 periodically disappeared from the system. When I removed webcam it worked. Probably Rpi doesn't have enough power to run so many devices.

That's right. RPi needs at least 5V - 2.5A
