Post PS3 controller (sixaxis) on xubuntu 16.04
Xubuntu 16.04 is one shitty update.

I tried using the Sixaxis thing (forgotten its name, I won't grace it with it either) and I find it doesn't actually wish to work for anything, I have tried higan (nothing). Couldn't install ZSNES because of some shitty issue with the packages on 16.04, so run Wine with it, and again, fuck all happens.

64-bit Xubuntu 16.04, I might mention.
I haven't played anything since my last controller's R1 button decided it would stop working completely. I only installed Xubuntu because PS3 controller doesn't work with a Mac.

But it seems it's the same for Xubuntu so I have three choice:

1. Move to Windows 7 64-bit with a cracked copy (I hate Windows)
2. Give up and use a keyboard to play SSF2 (fuck no)
3. Get help

Natural, chose the third option.

RIGHT, NEW INFO ABOUT:

xboxdrv and xpad installed, found this error that it was BUSY

log
btusb 45056 0
btrtl 16384 1 btusb
btbcm 16384 1 btusb
btintel 16384 1 btusb
bluetooth 520192 42 bnep,hidp,btbcm,btrtl,btusb,rfcomm,btintel

hid 118784 5 hidp,hid_sony,hid_generic,usbhid,hid_apple

hid_apple makes me think this will never be fixable

Thanks.

Gaminable - sadly doesn't have a snazzy UI like ZSNES's

But DS3 and I think also DS4 pads work natively with Mac OS X? You may need to press the reset button and pair them again, which is performed by plugging them in with a USB cable first, again, I think.

Been ages since I needed to pair a DS3 controller.
