Fedora 17 recognizes the PS3 controller when I plug it in via USB, however, I am unable to test or use the controller. So far, I have tried to test using "joystick" and in the game Super Meat Boy.
Do I need a utility to map the buttons for games to recognize the input? Is it not enough that the device is recognized by the system and shows when running the command 'lsusb'?
I have been searching Google for many hours and have not yet found a resource for how to get the PS3 controller in a working state from within Fedora. Any help would be appreciated.
