ps3 controller works with everything BUT pcsx2
#1
ok, i'm going to start this with the obligatory "i'm probably missing something stupid but..." i'm new to pcsx2, so maybe i've just overlooked something obvious. i'm a long time linux user, and i've just upgraded to some new hardware. for a very long time i've been running on old junk, and this christmas i finally had an opportunity to get myself a decent system (dell XPS-8920 running linux mint 18.3) and i've been moving a lot of what i do from my half dozen miscellaneous junk boxes on to my now decent machine.

one of my systems was a raspberry pi3 running retropie because i love my old games(metroid, tetris, spyro, and abe's). as i set up retropie on my new system, i discovered i've got enough horsepower to run pcsx2, and was incredibly excited to be able to run some of my other favorites that just wouldn't go on the pi (GTA:VC and Kingdom Hearts!). i still have my ps2, but in the interest of de-cluttering, i'm trying to get everything running on this that i can.

i use a ps3 controller (actual sony, not a generic), and it works well with everything BUT pcsx2. i've read a number of articles on how to make this work, but nothing seems to do the trick sadly. my system definitely recognizes the controller, as it works well with spyro and metroid through retropie, and jstest shows events exactly as you would expect, but pcsx2 only gives me the option of "keyboard/mouse only" when trying to configure onepad.

noticing that that there were some mentions of retropie being only 32bit, and library conflicts (SDL2) i decided to completely uninstall retropie, and do a full ground up manual installation of emulationstation and pcsx2. that's failed as welll with the same result. i can use the ps3 controller with everything else, but no joy with pcsx2.

i installed according to https://launchpad.net/~gregory-hainaut/+...ficial.ppa and my versions currently show

PCSX2 1.4.0
OnePAD 0-Dev 1.1.0

any suggestions would be appreciated

edit: feel free to tell me i'm being stupid, and as long as you provide a link or advice that fixes this i'll be appreciative

Is it working on 32 bots software? Maybe you miss a 32 bits library.

Note recent onepad are based on SDL 2 which might work better. But it seem that your pad isn't detected at all by SDL.

yes, those were my two thoughts as well, which is why i'm asking here. this install process is very non-intuitive. my base operating system is definitely x64. after your comment, i went looking for a way to test my ps3 controller through sdl2 and found this project (posting my process here for anyone else in my situation)

https://github.com/Grumbel/sdl-jstest

upon trying to build it informed me that sdl2 wasn't installed, which was a great surprise to me, though i had been using retropie previously, which takes care of a lot in the way of dependencies in the background. i installed it using

sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev
sudo apt-get install libsdl-dev

now the onepad config definitely sees the ps3 controller, so that's progress, but the controller still doesn't work in-game. here's the current log

replying to my own post to report problem solved! another non-intuitive situation.

the default config doesn't actually have bindings for the controller. after going through the config dialogue and registering the buttons on the controller, all seems to work properly now. thanks for the help

Cool

Latest onepad will autoconfigure the pad (however you won't be able to update it easily)
