Support for Sony´s DS4 Wireless adapter

Post by sedilson » Sat Dec 17, 2016 6:37 pm

Hi Matlo,

Prologue
MY setup DIY: Arduino Micro, works with DS3 (USB and Bluetooth) and DS4 USB, of course, flashing the corresponding Arduino firmware for DS3 and DS4. GIMX 6.3 running on RaspberryPi


Due to a brain blackout, I decided to buy a Sony Wireless Adapter (https://www.playstation.com/en-us/explo ... s-adaptor/) to use my DS4 in Raspbian along with GIMX, without ask or search if it´s supported. Looks like it´s not (right?).

Well, the name of the adapter in linux is different:
Sony_Interactive_Entertainment_DUALSHOCK®4_USB_Wireless_Adaptor
While, when DS4 USB connected:
Sony_Computer_Entertainment_Wireless_Controller
Of course, I have edited the Dualshock4.xml to accommodate the new name.

But when I try to start GIMX I have the following output:
global option -l with value `log.txt'
global option -c with value `TesteWL.xml'
controller #1: option -p with value `/dev/ttyUSB0'
now reading arguments for controller #2
status flag is set
subpos flag is set
force_updates flag is set
GIMX 6.3 ARMv6

USB adapter detected, controller type is: DS4.
No controller was found on USB buses.
gimx.c:208 main: no adapter detected
Looks like GIMX is looking for DS4 and the DS4 connected via Wireless adapter is not recognized as such.

I have found* this command to perform, to get information about joystick that I found useful:

udevadm info -q all -n /dev/input/js0
Following the output for DS4 USB connected and thru Wireless adapter:

Not sure if the authentication can be used along with this adapter but since i can be done using Bluetooth, maybe there´s a change.
Can you help me with this?
